Current scientific research is typically published through each field’s academic journals. This allows results to be peer-reviewed (reviewed by other experts in the field for accuracy and authority).
Open Access Journals are research publications which are available freely online without subscription barriers. Many of these journals use peer review to screen their published articles in the same way traditional subscription journals do.
