  1. Since this was first posted I've learned that the majority of open access journals - listed on the Directory of Open Access Journals - do not charge an article processing charge (APC) for publishing the Gold OA route. This is great news for researchers and I'll be covering more on this in a future post!

  2. Your this blog is very informative and interesting. Keep doing this type of great work.
