We were excited to see that Dr. Leary chose to publish in an open access journal. and we asked her for some thoughts on the process:
- Why did you choose to publish in an Open Access journal?
“Many of my researcher friends in industry and government are frustrated when they cannot access the research that “their tax dollars pay for” and would help to inform their own work/duties. Since I had the funds and could publish in open access, I tried to do so.”
2. Would you publish in an Open Access journal again? If so, why?
“Yes, although it is interesting that the process is much longer than for subscription based journals.”
