New Pricing Models Provide Greater Flexibility in Academic Publishing
Open Access or OA is a type of academic publishing and pricing model that can widening the impact research has, through a wider dissemination.
One of our OA pricing models – Freedom APC – helps researchers find funding to publish their work and select the amount they can afford to pay based on their financial circumstances, making it accessible regardless of geographical location or research area.
Research funders are increasingly supporting OA publishing as it makes academic research freely available to all. By asking the funders or authors to pay publishing costs, rather than the readers, this opens up access to knowledge for a huge number of people who couldn’t use it under a traditional subscriptions model.
The best part about publishing with Cogent OA was having such wide exposure for my research.
Once I posted my paper on academia.edu, it shot to the top of all papers viewed and has been there for a month!
