Publication charge of Science Domain international journals is extremely low compared to other open access publishers. It is commendable that even at such low cost they are providing transparent OPEN Peer review and post-publication peer review, DOI, permanent digital Archiving, wide indexing, etc.

Science Domain journals follow the guidelines regarding ‘Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing’, established by the COPE, the DOAJ, the OASPA. Science Domain journals additionally publicly publish a ‘self-compliance report’ for public and scholarly scrutiny (http://sciencedomain.org/journal/32/odc-compliance).

Transparent Advanced OPEN peer review 

 

It has been noted that many academicians from world famous universities like Harvard, Columbia University, Cambridge, University of Chicago, Yale University, University of Göttingen, etc have published their valuable papers with Sciencedomain journals. Please see gere for some proof (http://www.sciencedomain.org/page.php?id=author-profiles). Most probably these academicians have trusted Sciencedomain International due to transparent policies that include the standards of peer review process (Advanced Open Peer review), good indexing coverage, high editorial benchmarks, and many more. One must go through the terms and conditions of submission and publication policies in order to have a clear idea about the working style of this publisher. This publisher has always focused on providing readers with relevant information without any hassle.

 

As per a report (Link) of one of the world’s most famous journal (Science), one of the journal of Sciencedomain (British Journal of Pharmaceutical Research) passed a stringent test of quality of Peer review by rejecting a fake article (Link1, Link2, Link3). This is a verifiable proof of the dedication and hard-work of the peer reviewers and editors to maintain the high standard of journals. It was reported that out of total 304 journals, only 20 journals rejected the fake article after substantial peer review. Sciencedomain’s journal was among these few successful journals along with industry leaders like PLoS One, Hindawi, etc. It is imperative that the result of this experiment also proved the efficacy of transparent Advanced OPEN peer review and ‘post publication’ peer review system.

All these examples clearly stand against the working principle of some predatory publishers, who don’t provide any peer review service and don’t provide the basic services of a standard scholarly publisher.

Introduction

The Open Access (OA) movement started in 1960s and gained momentum in the 1990s with the advent of internet and digital archiving, etc. It was reported that the world famous physicist Leó Szilárd was one of the supporter of the basic principle of OA. Once in the 1940s, he suggested lightly that at the beginning of the career each scientist should be issued with 100 vouchers to pay for his papers. It is now possible to publish a scholarly article and also make it instantly accessible anywhere in the world where there are computers and internet connections or any other digital data access system. This social movement is mainly carried out by academia, dedicated to the principle of open access to information without any financial barrier to the reader/user, specially from the developing and under-developed countries. This movement slowly became the subject of much discussion among researchers, academics, librarians, university administrators, funding agencies, government officials, commercial publishers, and learned-society publishers.

 

Different Initiatives

In 1997, the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) made Medline, the most comprehensive index to medical literature on the planet, freely available in the form of PubMed. Usage of this database increased a hundredfold when it became free, strongly suggesting that prior limits on usage were impacted by lack of access. While indexes are not the main focus of the open access movement, free Medline is important in that it opened up a whole new form of use of scientific literature - by the public, not just professionals. In 2001, 34,000 scholars around the world signed "An Open Letter to Scientific Publishers", calling for "the establishment of an online public library that would provide the full contents of the published record of research and scholarly discourse in medicine and the life sciences in a freely accessible, fully searchable, interlinked form". In 2002, the Open Society Institute launched the Budapest Open Access Initiative. In 2003, the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities was drafted and the World Summit on the Information Society included open access in its Declaration of Principles and Plan of Action. In 2006, a Federal Research Public Access Act was introduced in US Congress by senators John Cornyn and Joe Lieberman. In November 27, 2009, the Manchester Manifesto came as an initiative from philosopher John Harris, Nobel-winning biologist Sir John Sulston, and 48 others from the Institute for Science, Ethics and Innovation (iSEI) at The University of Manchester.

 

Current status

OA movement is slowly becoming one of the strongest movements in scholarly publication and information sharing history. For example, in 2007, MIT OpenCourseWare, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to put all of the educational materials from their undergraduate and graduate level courses online, hit a monthly traffic record of over 2 million visits. Since 2003 efforts have been focused on open access mandating by the funders of research: governments, research funding agencies, and universities. Many countries, funders, universities and other organizations have now either made commitments to open access, or are in the process of reviewing their policies and procedures, with a view to opening up access to results of the research they are responsible for. Harvard University through the Harvard Open-Access Publishing Equity (HOPE) provides funds for the reimbursement of reasonable article processing fees for articles authored or co-authored by Harvard researchers published in eligible open-access journals. Stanford university, MIT, York university, Boston university, Duke university, University College London, etc are also supporting OA movement. As per SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), only in US more than 120 presidents, provosts, and chancellors of many large, small, public, and private U.S. universities and colleges have gone on record in support of the Federal Research Public Access Act (2009-2010 introduction) as of July 19, 2010. SPARC international currently have over 800 institutions in North America, Europe, Japan, China and Australia.
