Answer: YES!! Open access refers to who can use scholarly works free of charge and how scholarly publishing is funded, not the scholarship’s quality or rigor. Open access publishing provides citation and impact advantages to authors and barrier-free access to users. However, some open access "publishers" use “author pays” models to reap profits while disregarding ethical publishing practices, peer review and quality. We’ll outline the attributes of high-quality open access publishing and the warning signs of shady publishers. With this information, you can gain the benefits of OA publishing and enhance your scholarly reputation.

Answer: YES!! Open access refers to who can use scholarly works free of charge and how scholarly publishing is funded, not the scholarship’s quality or rigor. Open access publishing provides citation and impact advantages to authors and barrier-free access to users. However, some open access "publishers" use “author pays” models to reap profits while disregarding ethical publishing practices, peer review and quality. We’ll outline the attributes of high-quality open access publishing and the warning signs of shady publishers. With this information, you can gain the benefits of OA publishing and enhance your scholarly reputation.
