New AANP Open Access Award
Journal articles are considered
open access when their contents are free and open to everyone. The purpose of
open access is to spread the knowledge of original research without having cost
being a barrier. Open access journal articles are important to the health care
community because health providers who are not subscribers to a particular
journal may not otherwise have access to essential, current information
relevant information to their practice.
As an NP, you need the latest
research and evidence-based practice resources at your fingertips to stay up to
date with the constant changes to health care regulations and
recommendations. However, you also know it can be difficult and costly to
access and share this information. For those reasons, AANP is committed to
expanding access to original research that is either NP-lead or NP-focused.
Open Access Award
To improve the access and sharing
of journal articles, AANP is excited to announce the Open
Access Award. AANP members who have already had their
manuscripts accepted to a journal are eligible to apply for this award. The
award will cover the fee associated with a manuscript becoming open access at
the time of publication, but it will not cover any other fees associated with
publishing, such as manuscript editing, page charges, color charges and fees
for supplementary material.
