The academic publishing world, and specifically the scientific, technological and medical fields, are currently undergoing a dramatic change. An increasing number of scientists are eschewing the traditional models of publication in favor of those with open access. This new approach allows anyone to read cutting-edge research online for free, upending the traditions of academic publishing. In the past, people who wanted access to a publication had to pay subscription fees, usually thousands of dollars, to the publishers of these journals.
