Are you thinking about where to publish your next article?

Published on: 2 Jul 2018

In the last few years a revolution has taken place in academic publishing, with the advent of Open Access (OA) research. Open Access means that your research is accessible to all as soon as it is published so the whole world can see the great work you are doing. If this is something that sounds like it might be useful to moving up the ladder on your career path, why not consider BDJ Open for your next paper?
