Open Access Explained – Infographic

Open Access Explained - Hindawi Blog

Happy new year from all of us at Hindawi! We’re looking forward to the opportunities that 2017 will bring, but we’d like to start this year by reflecting on some fundamental aspects of the publishing area in which we operate.

Hindawi is completely Open Access – it’s all we do. We’ve been publishing exclusively OA journals for nearly ten years now (we’ll reach the major milestone in February) and we’re very proud to be part of such a crucial movement.

To provide more insight into why Open Access is so important, we’ve published a new infographic. It explains the many benefits to authors and readers alike, and also looks at why more open research is necessary on a global scale.

You can view and download the infographic here.
