You’ve heard of full journals receiving OA funding support, but did you know that if you are guest editing an OA special issue, that it is entirely possible to receive full OA funding on the special issue-level? Oftentimes, when OA funding has not yet been secured for the full journal, there is success in obtaining OA funding on a smaller scale, for a set number of articles (typically a special themed issue), which can then later put the full journal one step closing to becoming platinum.

As a researcher and contributor to scholarly works, it is important that you are receiving proper credit for your efforts and able to distinguish yourself from every other researcher out there. Through the use of ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID), it is possible to do just that. ORCID is a nonproprietary alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies researchers and scholarly contributors and their professional information – including affiliations, grants, publications, peer review activities, and more.

The act of submitting a manuscript to any publication is more than just uploading a word document and clicking “submit”. So much time, energy, and dedication go into preparing and finalizing research before it is submitted and goes through the peer review process.

This year’s International Open Access Week will take place from October 25-31, 2021. The theme for this year is “It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity.” The theme intentionally aligns with UNESCO’s (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) Recommendation on Open Science, which is expected to define shared values and principles for open science and identify concrete measures on open access and open data, with proposals to bring citizens closer to science and commitments to facilitate the production and dissemination of scientific knowledge around the world.

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.
