Falvey Membership to Hindawi Benefits Villanova Scholarly Community

Open Access Logo

Falvey Memorial Library is pleased to have an institutional membership to Hindawi Publishing Corporation. Launched in 1997, Hindawi publishes a growing number of open access journals in engineering, medicine and the sciences, and now includes Nursing Research and Practice, as well as social sciences titles such as Journal of Anthropology and Urban Studies Research. A complete list of current Hindawi titles is available at the company’s website.

So what is open access (OA)? In the words of SPARC researcher Peter Suber, “Open Access is a publishing model that provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full text of research articles without requiring a subscription to the journal in which these articles are published.” (Read more about open access here.) Publication costs are usually covered by the authors, the author’s institution or research funds. The OA business model facilitates the rapid sharing of scholarly research. It also offers an alternative to traditional subscription-based journal publishing, whose ever -soaring costs threaten to consume academic library budgets.

Because of Falvey’s institutional membership, the processing fee will be waived for all Villanova University authors whose articles are accepted for publication in Hindawi journals. (Please note that this fee waiver applies to articles submitted on or after February 15, 2012, the starting date of the library’s institutional membership).

Articles submitted to Hindawi journals undergo the same rigorous peer-review process as those submitted to subscription-access journals. In addition, many Hindawi titles are part of the International Scholarly Research Network (ISRN), a series of peer-reviewed, open-access journals with a 28-day review cycle.
