How the OSR works

Click here to find out how the Open Science Repository works to help researchers from around the world to publish their papers under open access.

This section of the Open Science Repository is receiving submissions of original research papers.

The Open Science Repository publishes original research papers under open access. Papers can describe research results, theoretical advancements, systematic reviews, qualitative or quantitative analyses, meta-analyses, critical reviews and other scholarly communications.


The Open Science Repository publishes papers under a Creative Commons Attribution License (CC-BY), meaning that authors retain ownership of copyright but that anyone can use the content provided authors and source are cited. Other leading open access publishers, like PLOS, also use the Creative Commons license.


Papers in the Open Science Repository receive a distinct DOI URL from the International DOI Foundation, for persistent online access throughout the scientific community.

Citation information

Each section of the Open Science Repository corresponds to a journal name. For example, when this section publishes a paper, the APA citation displays like this:

Authors' names. (Year). Title of the Paper. Open Science Repository Philosophy, Online (open-access), page number. doi:10.7392/openaccess.paperID


Google Search usually indexes papers in a few days and Google Scholar within a few weeks. All papers receive proper production for indexing by other scientific directories.

Publication decision

The Open Science Repository verifies every paper for compliance with its ethical guidelines. Review and publication take up to 10 days (under express publishing, see publication modes).
