Choosing a venue for publication

Today there is a multitude of evaluation methods, some of which are viewed very critically by researchers. The publication services offer information and support.
Open or Closed Access?
“Open Access" means free, unrestricted access to scholarly literature worldwide. "Closed Access", on the other hand, refers to traditional subscription journals.
In recent years, thousands of high-quality Open Access journals and a large number of repositories have been established. Many funding agencies demand that published research results be made accessible via Open Access. More and more agreements with publishers provide for Open Access options or Read&Publish models and offer opportunities for publishing Open Access at low cost.
