What prompted you to submit a manuscript to one of BioMed Central's open access journals?
The online submission and online publishing and access are great advantages for both authors and readers.
What was your assessment of the electronic submission and peer review process?
I found that the procedure of submitting to BMC Ophthalmology was very simple and minimally time consuming. The entire review process, including publication of the article, is so fast that it is far ahead of most journals in this regard. Due to the terrific publication speed, the first journal that comes to mind these days for submission of my research articles is none other than BMC Ophthalmology.
What do you think you gained from publishing in an open access journal?
The biggest gain is conveying my own observations and clinical experience to many readers due to the easy accessibility of this journal. Science can be best learnt by sharing with as many scientists as possible.
