OSP - Frequently Asked Questions


What is an open access publishing?

Open access publishing can be defined as articles which are made freely available online without any subscription charges. OSP journals are supported by payment of an article publishing charges (APC’s) by the authors, institution or research funders of the articles. Simply, it is a pay to publish model. Upon acceptance articles can be published online immediately and made available to everyone.

ISSN means International Standard Serial Number. A journal will be assigned with ISSN once the first issue is released. Researchers and scholars are joining the editorial boards of the journals. We expect to receive ISSN’s before the end of the year 2018.

What is the journal’s impact factor?

We expect to receive Impact Factor in the year 2021 for our journals. Impact factor is based on the publications for at least 2 years and citation data of the articles.
