Open Access Options for this Peer-Reviewed Journal
Benefits of Liebert Open Access:
Authors and research funders who chose to have their original research articles posted free online with immediate, unrestricted Open Access (OA) pay a one-time $3,200 article processing charge (APC). This article OA investment ensures the widest visibility, discoverability, and application of the funded research. Institutions and funders may support OA for their researchers by participating in the Liebert Author Advocacy Program (LAAP) which entitles authors to a 25% reduction of APC charges on articles published in Liebert journals.
OA Author benefits include:
- Fast track ONLINE publication and deposit to internationally recognized repositories (such as PubMedCentral*)
- Universally and freely available article access via the Internet
- Article recognition on TOC with OA icon and proper attribution of authorship, source, and full citation details
- Targeted email marketing announcement highlighting OA article
- Compliance with OA funding mandates with no embargo period
- Increased visibility - readership, citations, downloads
LAAP Author benefits:
