Many traditional journals cover the cost of publication through subscriptions to the journal and charging for purchase of individual articles. This means that if an author wants to use a previously published work, he/she will either have to pay to purchase the articles or look for articles which are freely available and cite them in his/her work. This results in fewer citations for articles which have to be purchased and more citations for articles which are freely available online. Open access publishing of IJCRI makes your article available for anyone to use in their work and increases its importance.
