As an author, you have the option to publish your research in one of our Open Access journals. Open Access allows your work to be freely available to readers worldwide, increasing the visibility and reach of your research. Additionally, we offer Open Access funding agreements which allow authors to cover the cost of publishing their article as Open Access. Our Open Access journals are subject to rigorous, independent peer review, ensuring all articles meet the same high quality of editorial, author, and production services you expect from Thieme.
