Publishing in Open Access
El Open Access is a movement that aims to facilitate access to scientific information through the Internet for its use by the scientific community. The author of works published in open access maintains control over the integrity of his publications that must be cited and acknowledged as his own. Some of the benefits of Open access are:
- Increased impact of scientific production by researchers thanks to greater visibility of publications.
- Visibility brings an increase in the number of citations
- Repercussion of the impact on the University that, as an institution, also benefits from the best positioning of its authors
- Access to a larger number of jobs without cost of subscription.
- Guarantee of electronic preservation of the results of research in the long term
Publishing in Open Access Journals
Authors have several options for their articles to benefit from open publication:
|Submit your journals that publish fully or partially in open access||You can check the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) y REDIB|
|Send your articles to magazines in which all articles are free, upon payment of the author.||The University of Cádiz Library has agreements with some publishers that provide discounts for publishing in some journals.
|Submit your articles to hybrid journals, with articles accessible by subscription and in open access.||Consult Sherpa Romeo for the publishers’ policy regarding open publishing. For Spanish journals you can consult Dulcinea
Deposit in the RODIN Institutional Repository
Once the article is published, it is convenient that it be deposited in the Institutional Repository of the UCA, which will continue to promote its visibility and dissemination and its consequent impact.
It is necessary to check the publisher’s self-archiving policy to know the conditions under which the deposit in the Repository is allowed. See Sherpa/Romeo or Dulcinea (for Spanish journals). To find out what copyright policies are applied by the publisher that has published your scientific articles, before self-archiving them in institutional or thematic repositories in open access such as RODIN, you can follow the steps described in this video:
