Baishideng Publishing Group (BPG) is proud to be counted among the group of journal publishers to first adopt the open-access (OA) publishing model. Since initiating the OA model in 2004, BPG has successfully transformed from an in-print exclusive publisher to providing its publications within the context of a digital environment, along the way designing and implementing a comprehensive workflow to make the publishing process more efficient for both our authors and journal management teams. Our successes in creating more convenient and substantive experiences in sourcing and reading information is the product of our receptiveness to new and innovative ideas and commitment to maintaining transparency between our authors and readers.


At BPG, we engage in accelerating interdisciplinary cross-border research and promoting scholarly communication. The OA publishing model allows us to reach all readers by eliminating cost barriers and other challenges related to physical delivery. We continually strive to improve our users experience in the digital environment, and our efforts include:


1 Providing articles in multiple formats, including HTML, PDF, and DOC;


2 Publishing E-books of case reports, an OA compendium of full-text articles provided to readers for free;


3 Building transparency by providing open access to the Peer-Review Reports and Authors’ Responses for each published article;


4 Constructing sustainable digital preservation archives with open access.


All articles published by BPG are selected by an in-house editor and fully peer-reviewed by external reviewers. BPG applies the Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 4.0) license, which permits others to distribute, remix, adapt, build upon this work non-commercially, and license their derivative works on different terms, provided the original work is properly cited and the use is non-commercial.
