Increase Citation Impact for Your Previously Published Research Work

By IGI Global on Nov 25, 2022
Authors who previously published their work under the traditional publishing model (standard access) can consider converting their work to open access under IGI Global's Retrospective Open Access Program.
How the Retrospective Open Access Publishing Program Works
Publications Eligible for Retrospective Open Access Conversion:
Full Books, Journal Volumes, Book Chapters, and Journal Articles
Why You Should Consider Converting Your Work to Open Access
  • Increase Citation Rates & Indexing Potential
  • Greater Notoriety for Authors’ and Editors’ Academic Institutions
  • Greater Sharing Power and Discoverability for the Authors and Editors
  • Copyright Returned to the Authors and Editors (Converted to CC Licensing)
  • Content Becomes Free to Access by All Researchers Around the World
  • Contents of the Unlocked Work Can Be Utilized in Future Publications and Teaching Materials
  • Opportunity for Additional Research Collaborations
  • Affordable Open Access Conversion Fees
  • Institutions Funding Conversions Will Benefit From a Wide Range of Promotional Materials Highlighting the Funding Sponsorship
    Dr. Sang-Bing Tsai Speaks to the Rise in Impact for His Journal, Journal of Organizational and End User Computing (JOEUC)
    In my opinion, the most important thing for a journal to be defined as an excellent journal is that the external objective indicators should be of high level, such as the impact factor of Web of Science and the CiteScore of Scopus, and the internal evaluation reputation in the research field should be excellent. We have been working hard on these two aspects for several years, and now our journals are ranked very high in Web of Science and Scopus.

    - Sang-Bing Tsai, JOEUC Editor-in-Chief

    The shift to open access (OA) for JOEUC has proven to be highly successful as the journal is experiencing an increase to its usage and citation rates as the content is now freely accessible and no longer behind a paywall.

    Converting work to open access does require the use of various resources and tools. Additionally, because the copyright for the work will be released back to the author(s) and the work will no longer be behind a paywall or collecting subscription revenue, open access processing charges are critical to ensure the sustainability of the publication and IGI Global’s open access publishing program. Retrospective open access fees are affordable and priced based on the publication date of the chapter, article, or book publication.
    Funding Considerations and Options
    Contributor Funding and Discount Options
    • Any IGI Global contributor who has earned royalties or honorariums on their projects can use the amount toward unlocking one or more of their previously published journal articles, book chapters, or full book publications. IGI Global contributors also receive an exclusive 20% open access processing charge discount that they may use on retrospective open access.
    • Consider crowdfunding the Article Processing Charge (APC), Chapter Processing Charge (CPC), or Book Processing Charge (BPC) with multiple funders such as institutions, national funding, self-funding (come together with other authors and editors – for edited books, instead of open access funding for the book being fully covered by a BPC, each chapter author pays the retrospective CPC for the conversion of their work), etc. to each contribute a portion of the funds (note for full book publications, crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter or can be used).
    Other Funding Options
    • Some open access funders provide provisions for authors to open their work retrospectively. For a list of OA funding organizations, please visit the Open Access Funding Resources page.
    • Utilize foundations/associations for retrospective open access funding coming from foundations with specialized and focused topic areas.
