Cogent OA

Cogent OA is an open access publisher that puts authors' interests at the heart of everything.

Cogent OA offers all the traditional services such as thorough peer review and high quality online presentation, with the added benefit of open access including rapid publication and worldwide visibility. The Cogent Series consists of 15 broad-scope open access journals covering all disciplines. Freedom Article Publishing Charges – a unique pricing model first introduced by Cogent OA, allow authors without external funding to choose how much to contribute towards open access publishing.

The platform has a simple and intuitive interface, designed to meet the expectations of a generation with high design standards and limited time. Authors are encouraged to add video abstracts, supplementary data and public interest statements to explain their work. Our goal is to ensure authors’ work is found and read by the broadest possible audience – both within and also from outside their direct fields of interest.
