Open Access Policy
Advances in BioScience (eISSN: 2583-0058) is committed to making all of its research publications freely available to anyone, anywhere in the world, without subscription or price barriers. This commitment ensures timely, equitable and sustainable access to scientific research for all, regardless of geographical location, institutional affiliation or financial means. By adopting an open-access model, we aim to maximize the visibility, use, and impact of our published articles, thereby increasing the value and credibility of scholarly communications in the field of biological sciences.
Under our open-access policy, all articles published in Advances in BioScience are immediately released under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). This license permits unrestricted use, distribution, reproduction, and adaptation in any medium, provided that appropriate credit is given to the author(s) and the source. A link to the license must be provided, and any changes, if made, should be indicated clearly and explicitly. This licensing agreement enables authors to retain ownership of their intellectual property rights while allowing others to build upon and share their work for educational, commercial, or other purposes.
To support the sustainability of our open access model, Advances in BioScience charges article processing fees to cover the costs associated with managing the peer-review process, copyediting, formatting, hosting, archiving, and disseminating each published article. These fees may vary depending on the length, and complexity of the article, as well as the services requested by the author(s). However, we offer waivers and discounts for authors who lack sufficient funding or face economic hardship, and we never charge any fees for reading, downloading, or sharing the published articles.
Advances in BioScience embraces open access principles to build a more inclusive, transparent, and accountable academic community, where research outcomes and data can be accessible, scrutinized, replicated, and developed upon by scholars, policymakers, educators, innovators, and citizens. With this approach, we hope to enhance public trust in science, promote new discoveries and applications, and ultimately improve the lives and livelihoods of people. Join us today in our effort to make scientific knowledge freely available, open, and accessible to all!
