InfoSci®-Open
A collection of Open Access journal articles in emerging research areas

About InfoSci-Open

InfoSci®-Open provides all of IGI Global’s Open Access articles in one convenient location and user-friendly interface. These articles are from IGI Global’s world-class collection of 175+ journals that cover emerging research in core subjects including:

  • Business and Management
  • Computer Science and Information Technology
  • Education
  • Engineering
  • Environmental, Agricultural, and Physical Sciences
  • Government and Law
  • Library and Information Science
  • Media and Communications
  • Medical, Healthcare, and Life Sciences
  • Security and Forensics
  • Social Sciences and Humanities

All of IGI Global’s journals and books undergo a double-blind peer review process and are found in prestigious indices such as Web of Science, Scopus, Ei Compendex, PsycINFO®, and more. Additionally, all journals are available as hybrid open access which allows the author to choose whether to publish their paper open access or as part of the journal's subscription-based content. If the author opts to publish the paper as open access, the author or funding body pays an article processing charge to make the paper freely available online alongside the subscription-based content. With this option, the published article is immediately made freely available, without any embargo.

Please note that you are navigating away from the Online Bookstore and entering the InfoSci© platform. The platform will be filtered to showcase all IGI Global's Open Access content; however, users have the ability to explore article abstracts, chapter summaries, and tables of content of IGI Global's full book and journal collections.

New Open Access Fee Waiver InitiativeFor any library that invests in an IGI Global journal database, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the open access article processing charge (APC) for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under open access into an IGI Global journal housed within that collection.* Learn More at IGI Global's Open Access webpage.
*The fund will be offered on an annual basis and expire at the end of the subscription period. The fund would renew as the subscription is renewed for each year thereafter. The open access fees will be waived after the student, faculty, or staff’s paper has been vetted and accepted into an IGI Global journal and the fund can only be used toward publishing OA in an IGI Global journal. Libraries in developing countries will have the match on their investment doubled.
