"I had a very good experience with Openventio regarding the publication of my article ‘Looking back Moving Forward, Reflection on Race and Racism.’ I felt the response time was good and the manner my questions was answered was helpful, polite and professional. The editors were well versed in the area of race and racism and gave constructive and insightful feedback. They went over and beyond what I expected, so I thank them for them. The article is well laid-out and well presented and I like that Openventio are contemporary and they want to carry articles that reflect current conflicts in society. Would be publishing with Openventio again."
