Open access - the free and unrestricted online publication of scholarly articles - promises a new era of access to research. But behind the scenes, financial hurdles lurk. Authors face high fees for publishing their work, while reputable publishers such as Elsevier are under fire. The Guardian reveals ( More than 40 high-profile academics have thrown in the towel in protest at Elsevier’s exorbitant publishing costs. However, as the debate over excessive charges heats up, it must be acknowledged that moderate open access fees can be a justifiable way of covering the costs of peer review, technical infrastructure, and editorial work. The Guardian speaks of larger profit margins than big tech giants like Amazon and over $3000 for a single publication - sometimes even more.

Affordable open access and equal opportunities

For authors, low-cost OA is invaluable because it helps distribute their research and makes it more widely available. However, the burden of high publication fees is a significant barrier, particularly for researchers affiliated with less affluent institutions or countries. By allowing all researchers to share and disseminate their work freely, affordable open access promotes diversity of voices in academia and improves equality of opportunity.

Quality control and reach

Quality control and a reputable publisher with a broad reach are important to ensure the credibility and visibility of scientific work. Through peer review, journals ensure that research results are subjected to a critical review process, increasing the quality and reliability of published work. An established publisher with a broad reach enables authors to disseminate their results to a wider audience and to make their work known to the scientific community. This contributes to the recognition and citation of research and promotes scientific progress.

The affiliate link model at ConductScience Publishing House means that academics pay meager fees to publish their work. By embedding affiliate links in articles, they establish a symbiotic relationship between the publisher, the scientist, and the vendor. When readers, including replicating scientists, purchase products through these links, a portion of the sale is returned to conduct science. This revenue allows Conduct Science to minimize publication fees for scientists, lowering the financial barrier to publishing their research. As a result, this model supports their open-access policy and maintains our commitment to disseminating scientific knowledge without imposing significant economic burdens on authors.
