    Hello,I will be free to say a couple of words about Open Access.
    Most journal articles are distributed via the World Wide Web, due to low distribution costs, increasing reach, speed, and increasing importance for scholarly communication.
    The main reason authors make their articles openly accessible is to maximize their research impact.
    Scholars are paid by research funders and/or their universities to do research; the published article is the report of the work they have done, rather than an item for commercial gain.
    More the article is used, cited, applied and built upon, the better for research as well as for the researcher’s career.
    Similarly, the more quickly it is accessible, the better; open access can reduce publication delays, an obstacle which led many research fields to traditions of widespread preprint access.
