Open Access Policy

1. What is open access?

Open Access (OA) refers to free, unrestricted online access to research outputs such as journal articles and books. OA content is open to all, with no access fees.

Open access publishing fosters the exchange of research results among scientists from different disciplines, thus facilitating interdisciplinary research. Open access publishing also provides access to research results to researchers worldwide, including those from developing countries, and to an interested general public.

2. Copyright and OA licenses

Authors will have copyright but grant broad publishing and distribution rights to the publisher, including the right to publish the article on Universal Wiser online platforms.The author chooses an end user license under which readers can use and share the article.The publisher makes the article available online with the author's choice of end user license.

3. Benefits of OA for Authors

The high availability and visibility of authors’ articles is guaranteed through the free and unlimited accessibility of the publication over the internet. Open access publications are also more likely to be included in search engines and indexing databases.

The higher citation impact of open access articles results from their high publicity and availability.

Faster publication, accepted articles are typically published online more rapidly than those of traditional, subscription-based and printed journals are.
