The Gold Open Access Model
The Sciedu Press follows a Gold Open Access model, which makes it much easier for authors to upload their work. The Gold Open Access model is accessed for free. Publishing fee is usually recovered through subscription fee or through funding by external sources and supporters. This allows research work to be spread in a timely manner, fulfilling Sciedu’s aim of free flow of information while giving authors a break on huge publishing charges. In fact, less than 30 percent of authors have to pay for the publishing fee, which is quite a small percentage compared to the green access model of publishing.
