 OPEN access international journals
  • Many Nobel Laureates & Luminaries have supported Open Access broad dissemination of research results. Visitors of this page should note that SDI has no connection with these great persons. This page is created for general awareness of the visitors about the magnitude and momentum of OA movement. This page should be considered as general information only. SDI wants that more people should be attracted to Open Access (OA) movement.

    41 Nobel Prize Winners wrote that "..Broad dissemination of research results is fundamental to the advancement of knowledge..".

    Recently 41 Nobel laureates wrote that "....research results are not available to researchers, scientists, or members of the public. We believe Congress can and must act to ensure that all potential users have free and timely access on the Internet to peer-reviewed federal research findings. This ultimately magnifies the public benefits of research by promoting progress, enhancing economic growth, and improving the public welfare.
    As the pursuit of science is increasingly conducted in a digital world, we need policies that ensure that the opportunities the Internet presents for new research tools and techniques to be employed can be fully exploited. The removal of access barriers and the enabling of expanded use of research findings has the potential to dramatically transform how we approach issues of vital importance to the public, such as biomedicine, climate change, and energy research. ....."

    Souce: An Open Letter to the U.S. Congress Signed by 41 Nobel Prize Winners (November 2009)1

    33 Nobel Prize Winners wrote that "...For scientists working at the cutting edge of knowledge, it is essential that they have unhindered access to the world's scientific literature...".

    Recently 33 Nobel laureates wrote that, "...scientists and researchers at all but the most well-financed universities are finding it difficult to pay the escalating costs of subscriptions to the journals that provide their life blood....".
    They also opined that, ".....The clientele for this knowledge are not just an esoteric group of university scientists and researchers who are pushing forward the frontiers of knowledge. Increasingly, high school students preparing for their science fairs need access to this material so that they too can feel the thrill of research. Teachers preparing courses also need access to the most up-to-date science to augment the inevitably out-of-date textbooks. Most importantly, the lay public wants to know about research findings that may be pertinent to their own health diagnoses and treatment modalities......"

    Souce: An Open Letter to the U.S. Congress Signed by 33 Nobel Prize Winners (Sep 9, 2008)2

    Sir John Edward Sulston, FRS, is a British biologist and the 2002 Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine laureate. He is currently Chair of the newly-founded Institute for Science, Ethics and Innovation (iSEI) at the University of Manchester. He is one of the supporter of OA movement. Along with philosopher John Harris he is one of the main architects of the Manchester Manifesto, came in November 27, 2009.

    Peter Suber is the creator of the game Nomic and a leading voice in the open access movement. He is a senior research professor of philosophy at Earlham College, Fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center and Office for Scholarly Communication, the open access project director at Public Knowledge, a senior researcher at SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition). He is also a member of the Advisory Boards at the Wikimedia Foundation, the Open Knowledge Foundation, and other organizations devoted to open access and an information commons.


    MIT Faculty Chair Bish Sanyal, a supporter of OA movement, described the anonymous vote for MIT-open-access-mandate as “a signal to the world that we speak in a unified voice; that what we value is the free flow of ideas.”

    Daniel Shek, professor at Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, told: “Open Access journals offer an innovative and efficient way of publication for academics and professionals in a wide range of disciplines. The papers published are of high quality after rigorous peer review and they are Indexed in: major international databases. I read Open Access journals to keep abreast of the recent development in my field of study."


    Hal Abelson is professor at Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a vocal supporter of OA movement. Under his chairmanship, the committee formulated the MIT Faculty Open-Access Policy which became university-wide OA mandate.

    M. Bendandi, professor, University Clinic of Navarre, Spain, told: "Open access journals have become a fundamental tool for students, researchers, patients and the general public. Many people from institutions which do not have library or cannot afford to subscribe scientific journals benefit of them on a daily basis. The articles are among the best and cover most scientific areas."


    Prof Anthony Finkelstein, Head of Computer Science, University College London, said: “Impact is the watchword for research and this depends on it reaching the widest audience possible. Open Access is a critical enabler for this. UCL’s plans to build a major scholarly resource around its Open Access policy is warmly welcomed by researchers across UCL.”

    Kenji Hashimoto, professor at Chiba University, Japan, told: "Open access journals are freely available online throughout the world, for you to read, download, copy, distribute, and use. The articles published in the open access journals are high quality and cover a wide range of fields."


    Professor Chris Carey, Head of Greek and Latin, University College London, said: “The potential benefits of Open Access as a means of making cutting edge research available across the world cost free are enormous. This is an opportunity to make a major impact in regions where cost is a potentially insuperable obstacle to access. The scale, diversity and outstanding quality of UCL research make us ideal leaders in this field.”

    J.C. Jones is professor at Mechanics of Materials Research Group, University of Aberdeen, Scotland. He is the author of 300 publications including six university-level textbooks. In support of the OA movement he said, "The advantage of the Open Journal series is that it is just that: open, and accessible to anyone with a PC at no charge I appeal to scholars across the disciplines to consider the Open Journal series as a forum for their work."

    Since the beginning in 2011, Sciencedomain International has successfully delivered a myriad of journals to the science enthusiasts. They started with only 18 journals but in 2015, they have created an extensive portfolio of total 35 journals. As the competition is fierce in the journal publication industry, a number of journals from different publishers were unable to leave their mark in the industry. On the contrary, Sciencedomain International has taken a huge leap forward towards success in the year 2015 by controlling 0.27% of the global publishing market. Their growth rate is remarkable, and it is reflected from their 0.01% to 0.14% growth in the first four years of their operation. This growth rate is far more great than some other leading OA publishers in the industry. Sciencedomain International really appreciates everyone's support to enable them reach at this current position in world publication market.

    ScienceDomain International is a new and promising publisher of STM journals from India. It is noteworthy that this publisher follows Transparent and robust “Open peer review” model. In 2013 an article published in famous Science journal (, which reported that out of total 304 journals, only 20 journals rejected a fake article after substantial peer review. Sciencedomain’s journal was among these few successful journals. It also provides wide indexing coverage and provides public proof for every claim of indexing. It also renders the service of perpetual archiving with Portico, DOI for every article, plagiarism checking for each submission, etc. Many scientists from world famous universities like Harvard, Columbia University, Cambridge, University of Chicago, Yale University, University of Göttingen, etc published with Science Domain journals. All these examples clearly stand against the working principle of some predatory publishers, who don’t provide any peer review service and don’t provide the basic services of a standard scholarly publisher.

 A WHITE PAPER regarding fight against Predatory Publication practices: published by Sciencedomain International
  • Some open-access publishers publish papers without peer review to make easy money. Some publishers publish articles in their journals within one or two days after submission, provided publication charge is paid. These publishers even advertise in their website and “calls for paper” that they will publish the paper within 1-4 days of submission. Jeffrey Beall, the Denver-based former librarian, first coined the term “predatory publishing” in 2011, to identify such predatory journals. But at the later stage, his methodology to identify predatory journals was questioned. Many academicians proved that Beall's evaluation was biased and erroneous. Please see the related discussion here: But nobody can deny the contribution of Mr. Beall to identify the black side of open access scholarly publication.

    ‘Sciencedomain International’ (SDI) fights against predatory publication practices for many years. ‘Sciencedomain International’ is also a victim of the predatory publication model. Many times ‘Sciencedomain International’ was labelled with “predatory” stamp, as Sciencedomain also follows open access publication model. Confusion and mixing the name of ‘Sciencedomain International’ with low-quality predatory publishers harmed the brand image of ‘Sciencedomain International’ in many ways.

    Therefore Sciencedomain International took some proactive steps to fight against the predatory publication problem starting from 2011. Some distinguished operating principles of ‘Sciencedomain International’ are discussed below and the backgrounds of these steps are also discussed.
