Abstract

How COVID-19 has changed the process of academic publishing? Open science and open access to research receive acknowledgment even from pay-to-read publishers. The peer-review procedure and publication time are significantly accelerated. The world deserves a better concept for dissemination of scientific discoveries. Not only during the time of pandemic and not only to coronavirus-related research.

Keywords: COVID-19, Coronavirus, academic publishing, open access, peer review, open science
