Inderscience has introduced a new open access option for authors. For a fee to cover the cost of publication authors can have their accepted articles available online and openly accessible to all without any restriction except use for commercial purposes. This means that readers may access, read, download or print out the article free of charge, even if their library does not hold the journal on subscription.
Inderscience continues to publish its journals on subscription. This option caters for authors that want to ensure that their work is available to anyone free of charge. Inderscience will treat all papers submitted for publication in exactly the same way, with rigorous peer review, professional editing and production, and worldwide publication, including inclusion in the CrossRef citation linking system and in appropriate indexes. If the author takes up the Author Open Access Option, the article will be designated as open access in the journal.
