Features in Detail

You Remain the Publisher 

Journals hosted on GSJ are not published by Springer. You remain the publisher and have full control and responsibility for the editorial content of the journal and for the submission, peer-review and production of the journal articles.

Open Access 

All GlobalScienceJournals.com journals are fully open access. Open access publishing makes articles immediately and permanently available online for everyone, everywhere. All articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license, enabling authors to retain copyright to their work.

What is the difference between open access and free access? 

Free access articles are freely available for all readers worldwide, for a limited time period or permanently.
Open access articles are freely available worldwide as well. However, the copyright is not transferred to the Publisher; it remains with the author. Open access articles on GlobalScienceJournals.com are freely available for anyone, anywhere, at anytime.
Thus, the difference between free access and open access is about the copyright, the license terms and – very important – the resulting open access publication charge (also called article processing and hosting charge, APHC).
Open Access articles on GSJ are published under a Creative Commons License; the author doesn’t have to transfer the copyright to the Publisher. The Creative Commons License defines that articles can be re-used as long as the authors are properly attributed

Benefits of Open Access publishing 

Research articles published in Open Access journals are freely available online to the entire global research community
This has a demonstrable effect on the impact of the science published in open access, which can be measured as higher relative citations to Open Access journals.
For a journal seeking to quickly build its reputation, Open Access is the perfect way, especially if costs to the authors are low to non-existent.

Pricing 

  • Journal set-up (onetime fee) $ 1000 per journal
  • Article processing and hosting $ 100 per article
  • Article processing and hosting plus conversion to Full Text XML: $150 per article
  • Annual journal maintenance $ 200 per journal per year

What is SEO 

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) improving the quality and volume of web traffic to a website by employing a series of proven SEO techniques, to ensure that the algorithms used by major search engines such as Google, are able to find the information on the website and rank it as highly as possible when certain keywords and phrases are put in the search field.
As these algorithms are constantly evolving it is important to constantly evolve the website to keep up with this and ensure consistently high rankings. The Global Science Journals website enjoys the same weekly updates as Springer.com and Springerlink and therefore the SEO is as up to date as possible.

Host Journals in any Language 

There are no restrictions on language or alphabet used in the journals hosted on GSJ. While metadata (Title, Authors, Keywords, Abstract and References) needs be in English as well as the original language, the rest of the article can be in any language you choose.

Journal Development 

If you are having problems finding a major publisher for your journal, you can use GSJ to develop your journal to the point that it is well established. As a low cost yet state of the art system, GSJ is perfect for experimenting with new journal concepts and foci.

A home for your journal 

Individual GSJ pages for each title present your journal to the worldwide audience. Here complete information about the journal can be found including the cover image, aims and scope, editorial board and linksto submit to the journal or to your organisation.

Continuous Article Publishing 

Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) model for fast accessibility: articles are published as soon as they are ready – no need to wait for issue building. Articles can be found, accessed and cited as early as possible to maximize citations.
  • Articles are published with article numbers; for example Article 1 of Volume 1 with the article number increasing for each consecutive article
  • As articles are indentified completely with their Article Number, they are immediately citable in their final form. There is no wait for the article to be published in an issue
  • As soon as they are online they are citable and the metadata exported to Abstracting and Indexing services.
  • This means the maximum chance of citations for each article.

Digital Object Identifiers 

Global Science Journals makes sure the articles of your journal are DOI registered with a special GSJ prefix for easy citation and indexing. The DOIs are not only mentioned in the metadata XML but also will be stamped into the PDFs of the articles during processing

Permanency of articles 

We have taken steps to ensure that all open access articles published in a Global Science Journals journal are deposited in a number of safe Open Access archives. Should Global Science Journals fail, open access to the articles published is guaranteed to continue via those archives.

Printing 

Global Science Journals will not provide printed copies of issues or journals, however as the content is Open Access and you are the owner of the title of the journal, you are free to print and sell copies as you wish.
