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.
