Publish or Perish? Open Access Publisher Offers Scholars an Alternative

Scientific Journals International (SJI) joins
SSRN in the movement towards rapid online
dissemination of scholarly research.

SJI publishes peer-reviewed open-access journals
for all disciplines. Its mission is "to give every
researcher, writer or artist a fair consideration to be
published [and] provide immediate, world-wide,
barrier-free, open access to the full text of research
articles and creative works." Towards that end, SJI
deliberately maintains minimal procedural and stylistic
rules, and accepts papers that follow any style manual
such as APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.

SJI journals currently include:

Journal of Intellectual Property
Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences
Journal of Multidisciplinary Research
Journal of Business and Public Affairs
Journal of Medical and Biological Sciences
Journal of Agricultural, Food, and Environmental Sciences
Journal of Education and Human Development
Journal of Engineering, Computing and Architecture
Journal of Mathematical Sciences
Journal of Physical Sciences
Journal of Creative Work
Journal of Dissertation
Journal of Electronic Book

The SJI web site provides details about the
Editorial and Advisory Board. Manuscript submission
guidelines for all journals can be found at
