Open access (OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer-reviewed academic books or scholarly journal (full text) articles. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.
Unlike conventional publishing which required huge investments by students, researcher or anyone who wishes to get their work noticed, Open Access provides an easy publication of work and also easy access to information online. Through Open Access, we allow readers to access scientific publications online and free of charge.
Open-access literature is digital, online, free of charge, free of most copyright and licensing restrictions which create more impact on the author’s work. It maximize the opportunity to accelerate research works and learning process.
All research articles published under Graphy Publications are fully Open Access: immediately, freely available to read, download, and share. Articles are published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License which permits use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. The license is subject to Graphy Publications open access terms and conditions.
Open Access helps the author to be recognized globally for their contribution in their respective field and beyond. In this model, the publication costs are usually covered by the author's institution or research funds. These Open Access charges replace subscription charges and allow the publishers to make the published material freely available to all interested online readers.
In this regard, Graphy Publications, an Open Access publication model strongly supports the Open Access initiative and the Bethesda Statement on Open Access publishing. Abstracts and full texts (HTML, XML and PDF format) of all articles published by Graphy journals are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication.
An Open Access publication  is one that meets the following conditions:
- The author(s) and copyright holder(s) grant to all users a free, irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual right of access and a license to copy, use, distribute, transmit and display the work publicly and to make and distribute derivative works in any digital medium for any responsible purpose, subject to proper attribution of authorship , as well as the right to make small number of printed copies for their personal use.
- A complete version of the work and all supplemental materials, including a copy of the permission as stated above, in a suitable standard electronic format is deposited immediately upon initial publication in at least one online repository that is supported by an academic institution, scholarly society, government agency, or other well-established organization that seeks to enable Open Access, unrestricted distribution, interoperability, and long-term archiving (for the biomedical sciences, PubMed Central is such a repository).
- Open Access is a property of individual works.
- Community standards, rather than copyright law, will continue to provide the mechanism for enforcement of proper attribution and responsible use of the published work, as they do now.
