In this age of information, the Open Access publishing model gained popularity rather than a traditional subscription-based publishing model due to its reach to everyone freely. Reaching to the more targeted and non-targeted audience simultaneously provides the authors their due credibility along with popularity among the scholars working on the same field. On the other hand, valuable scientific information reaches to academicians who are not able to bear the subscription charges and view the articles. Therefore, the open-access model is providing access to the scientific information to all the researchers and academicians in all quarters.
Once a manuscript is accepted it is processed for formatting and layout by our design team and then published online with open access to everyone. Open Access provides free, unrestricted online access to scholarly literature to anyone in the world. At SMJ, we are convinced that everyone – not only scientists - can benefit from research results, and we publish all our articles exclusively under open access distribution, with a Creative Commons attribution license agreement. The copyright is transferred to authors and readers have the right to use, distribute, and reproduce in any medium, provided the source is properly cited.
Article publishing fees help us to offset the costs associated with editing, formatting & layout, typesetting, storing, tier-climbing, archiving and peer evaluation of the article, as well as maintaining the most advanced website in online publishing, and our friendly, professional office. There is no additional charge for color figures or for supplementary material.
