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:

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).
