Golden Road to Open Access

What is Golden Road to Open Access and why should you know about it?
Open Access Journals, also referred to as the golden road to OA, aim to achieve maximum dissemination of the articles they publish so that as many scientists and scholars as possible can have access to them. Articles in open access journals can be accessed free of charge, thus increasing their visibility. This leads to higher citation rates which, in turn, increases the respective journal's impact factor and, thus, its reputation. Open Access Journals publish original articles that undergo a peer-review process. The publication process in Open access journals is usually more cost-effective compared to traditional publishing.
