Meaning of Open Access

In accordance with major definitions of open access in the scientific literature defined by the Berlin Agreement in 2003 , it improves the pace, efficiency, and value of research to society. By its very nature, it improves the visibility of authors' work and enables better scholarly exchange, and therefore, the potential impact of that work. Paragraphs Media Publishing defines open access by the following conditions:

  • peer-reviewed literature is freely available without subscription or price barriers,
  • literature is immediately released in open access format (no embargo period), and
  • published material can be re-used without obtaining permission as long as a correct citation to the original publication is given.

Gold open-access publishing services, which include end-to-end support – from research integrity and peer review, through to innovations in technology and artificial intelligence as well as global dissemination – are supported through Article Processing Charges (APCs). APCs enable the long-term stability of our program and facilitate equal opportunity to seek, share and create knowledge that benefits all society without restriction. Provides access to research results to researchers worldwide, including those from developing countries, and to an interested general public.

Important Note: some articles (especially Reviews) may contain figures, tables or text taken from other publications, for which Paragraphs Media Publishing does not hold the copyright or the right to re-license the published material. Please note that you should inquire with the original copyright holder (usually the original publisher or authors), whether or not this material can be re-used.
