What is Edorium Journals?

Edorium Journals is a new and growing academic publisher, founded in 2012 with the objective of publishing high quality scholarly content by following highest ethical principles and disseminating the content free of charge to readers in every part of the world, at very low publishing cost.

How many journals are published by Edorium?

Edorium Journals is currently publishing peer reviewed, scholarly journals covering subjects in basic sciences, medical specialties and surgical specialties. Over next few years we will launch and publish scholarly journals encompassing whole range of medical and biomedical disciplines. These journals will cover a wide range of subjects and give every author an avenue to publish their work in specialty and sub-specialty journals.

Why publish open access journals?

In the traditional model followed by many scientific publishers, the access to published research is restricted to recover the cost of publishing. The access is allowed only by subscription or purchase of articles and journal issues. This restricted access to published research is detrimental to the interests of authors, readers and the scientific community as a whole. The research of authors reaches a very limited scientific community and readers and libraries have to pay huge amount in subscriptions and purchase of articles. This is increasingly difficult as the amount of research is increasing while library budgets remain static. Open access publishing benefits you in both your roles - as an author and as a reader.
  • All published articles freely available to all readers in any part of the world.
  • Many traditional journals cover the cost of publication through subscriptions to the journal or charging for purchase of individual articles. This means that if an author wants to use previously published articles, he/she will either have to pay to purchase the articles or look for similar articles which are freely available. Free availability of your work means more citations for your articles and their increased impact in scientific literature.
  • You also benefit from work of other researchers published under Open Access. You are free to download and read their work and this provides you with the latest, peer-reviewed scientific information without charges.
  • You will retain the copyright of your articles, which means you can freely reproduce and distribute your work. No permission is required from publisher to use your own work as happens in traditional subscription based journals.
  • Everyone, including yourself, your friends, colleagues and the scientific community has immediate and free access to the results of your research.
  • For ease of access the articles are available in multiple formats (HTML, PDF).
  • The articles published under open access by Edorium fully citable. Each article receives a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number.
