In the world of open research, the label “free” is used quite frequently. However, while there are no paywalls or restrictions of any kind to access the published open content, the process for publishing such work does not come without cost. Publishers work tirelessly to ensure that open research is published with the highest level of quality, integrity, and accuracy, and this means a tremendous investment of time and resources.

While the peer review and revision phase in academic publishing may seem tedious, exhaustive, unnecessary, and time consuming to many scholars, what many don’t fully understand is how helpful and critical it is ensuring the highest level of accuracy, integrity, and quality for published research results. When a manuscript undergoes peer review, authors can benefit from constructive feedback provided by other experts in the field – oftentimes feedback that discusses the positives and the negatives of the piece with recommendations on how to further improve it.

As journals have become more digital over the last several years, publishers are striving to break away from the limitations that traditional print/issue schedules present, and instead are opting to migrate to a more continuous pace. Research becomes dated quite quickly and risks losing its value if it sits for too long, and waiting for the assembly of a monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, etc. issue for articles to be published can be a huge detriment to timely research dissemination.
