Open access (OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer–reviewed scholarly research. Open access journals provide 'gold' open access, meaning immediate open access to all of their articles on the publisher's website. ‘Gold’ open access for individual articles is funded by authors (or their author's institution or funders) who pay an open access publishing fee (APC).
The APC for Medicine® is $1400 for the Creative Commons 4.0 International licenses, with the exception of the CCBY license which is $1750.
