With Open Access
Publishing in an Open Access journal
makes your research available
to the public with no restrictions or embargoes, right from the very start.
you can share your research
That means you can showcase your results sooner,
meet funding deadlines and increase the impact of your research.
And, if you choose to take part in Open Science practices like preprints,
preregistration, or protocols, your work can be public even sooner.
Early availability—for example posting preprints—is associated
with higher citation and altmetrics counts.¹ ²
