Frontiers is a leading Open Access scholarly journal publisher, with 55 journals in many disciplines and growing. In addition to rising journal impact factors, Frontiers is advancing article-level and author metrics as new ways of measuring the impact of research. A growing number of UC Davis faculty members edit Frontiers journals and have gained experience with this new publishing model and its benefits and challenges for publishing research. Join
us for a look at the benefits of Open Access publishing for improving research impact through increased citations, and a cross- disciplinary panel of five UC Davis editors, on how Frontiers has worked in practice.
