Abstract

Research serves to seek new ideas, establish existing ones, and gives direction for further investigations. Publication is a means to share and communicate research. Research in the field of clinical psychology in India has been growing; yet, the journals are limited not by number but also by providing access to research to the scholars. This paper discusses the need for increasing access to research in clinical psychology and explores the possibility of open access publishing of the clinical psychology journals.
