Open access journals

The world’s most significant open access portfolio

In 2016, we helped over 78,000 authors from all over the world make their research freely available.

We publish over 600 fully open access journals in all disciplines, from the life sciences to the humanities. Authors also have the option to publish their article under an open access licence in more than 1,700 of our subscription journals.

Our portfolio focuses on robust and insightful research, supporting the development of new areas of knowledge and making ideas and information accessible around the world.

Across our publishing imprints are leading multidisciplinary and community-focused journals that offer rigorous, high-impact open access. Many of our titles are also published in partnership with academic societies, enabling them to achieve their own open research ambitions.
