AbstractPeer-reviewed open access publishing gives end users free access to online peer-reviewed journals. Authors are responsible for the cost of publishing articles in open-access journals, in contrast to the traditional model of publishing, where the cost is borne by the publisher who offsets this cost through charges such as subscriptions. While open access publishing puts a financial burden on the author, it also reaches a wider audience and gives individuals timelier access to scientific advances. However, the financial burden for scholars who lack financial support can be huge, and can impede their careers.
