Open Access Academic Journals Gaining Broad Readership: OMICS Group is Getting 30 Million Readers
HENDERSON (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 01, 2016
The publishing industry has been witnessing several technical and strategic changes over the years and Open Access publishing is one of the popular publication models that has received wider acknowledgement from the scientific community.
Open access publishing is producing 2 million articles annually and increasing global employment in the publishing industry. The present observed annual growth of article publishing through the Open Access model is at a rate of 7.5% to 10% every year.
With its 700+ open access journals and 3000+ International Conferences across the globe, OMICS Group is all set to provide open scientific information platforms, facilitating scientific knowledge sharing through the networked communities across the globe. As of now OMICS Group is getting 30+ million readers to its journals and conferences.
Open Access publication is gaining popularity due to increased online connectivity as it could reach millions of readers within no time, facilitating archiving, indexing, data mining, retrieving, and rapid distribution of research information. Hence, quick dissemination of valuable scientific innovations and knowledge transfer is taking place across the globe.
The number of researchers and authors trusting the Open Access publishing system is on the rise steadily by 5% each year and as many as 10 million authors are contributing through open access platforms now. No doubt, Open Access publication is going to remain as the most favorable publication model in the future as the subscription-based publishing and indexing sites are disappearing gradually with scholars and scientists getting relevant information sources from Open Access Journals.
OMICS Group is one of the pioneering Open Access publishers to rely on this philosophy, which assessed the power of sophisticated web technologies and its impact on publishing in those initial days. Today’s modern world is progressively looking at the Open Access providers for scientific information as they are transparent in providing equal access to all, facilitating faster development of research and publication in science, technology, medicine and commerce.
With 700+ open access journals, OMICS Group is a fertile global forum for discussion and knowledge sharing and OMICS Journals are attracting more than 15 Million unique visitors across the globe. These two sites are accounting for 40% journals out of 700 supported by the publisher. Moreover, 70% of the visitors to the sites comprise researchers from USA, India, UK, Japan, Germany, Italy, Australia, Brazil and South Korea, which have been serving as a global hub for scientific research.
