Open Access Diagnostic
Assess the performance of your portfolio, and capture weak areas and trends
How well do you understand the performance of your Open Access portfolio? APC revenue is the outcome of manuscript submissions, processing time, acceptance rate, and effective APC, the four performance drivers of the Open Access publishing model. Due to the long processing time from submission to acceptance and invoicing, any issues on any of these drivers will become apparent months late or may even go unnoticed if other drivers improve simultaneously.
Our diagnostic exercise will shed light on the performance of your portfolio. It will capture weak points and trends early, allowing you to act before financial performance has been impacted. Whether rapid submissions growth is slowing down the processing of manuscripts (thus delaying revenue) or submissions growth from certain regions are hurting acceptance rates (thus resulting to disproportionately low revenue growth), our diagnosis will find out.
