Reasons to publish in an open access journal:

  • Various studies have confirmed that the impact of reseach is greater when articles are easily accessible.
  • Most University research is publicly funded and authors should presume that the public deserves the opportunity to easily read work which they have subsidised. For example the European Commission supports open accessiblity for work they have funded.
  • Your work can be read by colleagues in developing countries or institutions who would not be able to fund commercial subscriptions.
  • Articles can be linked to directly from reading lists - advancing the cause of e-learning in law.
  • The open access model does not give proprietory rights to publishers: open access follows the spirit of copyright law in giving the author rights over their own work. Commercial publishers consistently attempt to undermine this right by requiring copyright assignment or exclusive rights (essentially the same thing).
