Scientific communication flow:
Why use Open Access? It improves scientific communication, it’s quicker in transferring knowledge, it increases use, it spreads/widens/augments the audience, inquiries and impact; Open Access also increases the content available to the users and adds more citations. Why reuse the content? it improves the quality, it reduces expenses, it makes the information available to anyone, it allows for transparency in the use of public funds, financial backers, sponsors, publicity, and it allows for the creation of a globalized infrastructure that is moving towards the world of e-science.
What does it mean for the researchers?
More visibility: top positioning in Google and other search engines, improved accessibility to more readers, more searches and downloads, more citations, less elapsed time between each citation, more data collection, conservation and continuous access to the materials and the creation of synergies and a network to contact other researchers.
The researchers who participate in projects sponsored by certain public organisms are required to publish the results in open access according to the terms established in their guidelines. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
