In my scientific life I experienced the whole range of possibilities for publications, from type written paper articles - real papers - to Open Access publications. No comparison! To this end I am convinced that we can foster and optimize our efforts in research and development by providing results much quicker and worldwide to scientists. By the Open Access strategy the authors may shorten our efforts and avoid duplications.
Having decided for Open Access in my group we continuously experience that our communication and interaction possibilities with the community multiply - rendering increased visibility of our own work. Thus Open Access is a method suitable to avoid the proverbial ivory tower of science.
