We are pleased to announce that a hybrid Open Access option is now available on Infants & Young Children!
Open Access gives all readers, including those who do not subscribe to IYC, the free, immediate, full-text use of digital scientific and scholarly material. Articles opting for hybrid Open Access will be freely available to read, download and share from the time of publication. This option allows for an extended reach of your article and it promotes the exchange and advancement of ideas and research findings.
LWW’s hybrid Open Access option is offered to authors whose articles have been accepted for publication. With this choice, authors of accepted peer-reviewed articles have the choice to pay a fee to allow perpetual unrestricted online access to their published article to readers globally, immediately upon publication. The article processing charge for IYC is $2,000. The article processing charge for authors funded by the Research Councils UK (RCUK) is $2,540. The publication fee is charged on acceptance of the article and should be paid within 30 days by credit card by the author, funding agency or institution. Payment must be received in full for the article to be published open access. All articles are subject to the journal’s standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
LWW’s hybrid Open Access publishing offers authors, institutions, research funding agencies and others high-quality publishing services including:
• Innovative publishing platform from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins
• Global distribution of freely available, quality open access research on our journals platform
• Article deposit in PubMed Central
• Rapid publication
• Rigorous peer review
• High-quality editorial services and support
• Compliance with federal funding mandates such as NIH, RCUK, and Wellcome Trust
We are pleased to offer this new publishing option, and encourage you to consult the journal’s Information for Authors section and the Open Access page for complete details.
Thank you for your continued support of Infants & Young Children.
