Traditional Open Access journals are subsidized by academic institutions, foundations, or government agencies or charge authors significant front-end fees (often much more than $1,000). Instead, we use an approach increasingly offered by both university presses and well-known commercial publishers called Hybrid Open Access.
Hybrid Open Access means that some of articles we publish are available only to subscribers or for a small fee, while others are available at no charge (”open access”) to anyone searching the web.
Authors pay a fee for the open access option. However, the Hybrid Open Access model allows us to keep this fee low—much lower than our competitors.
By publishing in our journals, your article is already available to the thousands of scholars who have individual subscriptions or whose institutions subscribe. However, making your paper open access will allow your work to reach an even wider audience, broadening the dissemination of your research, and increasing the incidence of other scholars citing your work.
With Institutional Open Access, instead of the author paying a per-article open access fee, institutions pay a set annual fee that entitles their students and faculty to publish a given number of open access articles in our peer reviewed academic journals. Both the authors and the institution enjoy significant additional visibility for their work, and have the right to distribute freely their final typeset articles.
One additional benefit of this approach is that the rights to the article remain with the subscribing institution. Both the author and the institution can also share the final typeset version of the article in any place they wish, including institutional repositories, personal websites, and privately or publicly accessible course materials. We support the highest Sherpa/Romeo access level—Green.
The annual Institutional Open Access fee covers the costs for a given number of faculty or students from an institution to publish accepted articles. Articles can be published in any of our academic journals (i.e., if an institution participates at the 5-article level, each of those five articles may be submitted to a different journal).
