Sona College of Technology, a part of the Sona Group, open a modern institutional research repository
Sona College of Technology, a part of The Sona Group, has set up an open-access research repository for the free access of the global research community. The news is featured in Yours Bulletin.
Research publications and journals that have a large number of citations and downloads have a barrier of paywall to access the knowledge. The most advanced research findings are accessible only with a huge pay. Out of research publications, 60.34% of the articles have high citations from the Web of Science and Scopus. This number is a reflection of the quality and accuracy of the research conducted.
Sona College of Technology wanted to break the paywall barrier by offering an AI-assisted open-access platform for the institution's research archives. The college ranks at the top of the most active educational institutions in the research.
Around 81% of global publishers do self-archiving in open access knowledge repositories for easy and cost-free access of knowledge by the research community. Sona College of Technology is moving towards this method.
