What prompted you to submit a paper?
Dissemination of scientific discoveries is the backbone of research. Hence, when I collect quality data I submit it for its dissemination.
What was your assessment of the electronic submission and peer review process?
It is a natural scientific evolution that has taken place since conventional snail-mail postal services have been hindering rapid expansion of scientific discoveries and their availability. So, the electronic submission and reviewing are now an integral part of scientific processing.
What do you think you gained from publishing in an open access journal?
Open access journals have removed the financial walls between the user and the producer. Now researchers can see the entire horizon of scientific progress. Publication of works in open access journals gives rapid and easy visibility of ones' work.
