Open access publishing is an author pays model, in which the published research is freely accessible to all. The cost to publish varies per journal and you can learn more about the Article Processing Charge (APC) for each journal in their submission guidelines.
Types of funding
Many funding bodies and institutions require that the work they support is made publicly available through a suitable repository. SAGE’s open access publishing programme, Open Access agreements and author archiving policies allow our authors to comply with the various requirements stipulated by the major funding bodies or an author's institution.
