Invitation to publish a Valuation Score Card for journal:
Water (ISSN: 2073-4441)
Dear Sir/Madam, More and more research funders require open access to research publications and the number of open access journals is growing rapidly. At the same time, both the quality of these journals and their publication fees vary widely. So, authors better inform themselves before submitting their article to such a journal. A place is needed where academia can share their publishing experiences. Quality Open Access Market is this place, fully based on academic crowd sourcing, independent of publishers. You have recently published an open access article in the journal Water. Are you prepared to share your experiences with your colleagues? If so, please click on the link at the bottom of this message. After logging in, you will be forwarded to a Valuation Score Card for the journal. It will take less than two minutes to complete this mini-questionnaire. Your card will be added to the Quality Open Access Market (www.qoam.eu) which also includes information about the publication fees and Base Score Cards produced by university libraries analysing the transparency of journals’ web sites about editorial info, peer review, governance and publication process. Thus QOAM becomes a true academic publishing forum enabling authors to make an informed decision based on the service the journal offers and see up front what each journal charges. For further contact, please use the Contact box of QOAM. Yours sincerely, Saskia de Vries and Leo Waaijers, founders of QOAM.
Note: an extra line containing the link to the Valuation Score Card of the journal will be added automatically at the bottom of this message.
