JIN’s Open Access Initiative

The advent of online publication has greatly improved access to scientific content on a global scale. This has led to calls from the academic community for research publications to be made freely available online and immediately upon publication, without the barrier of paid subscription to access.

In response to these calls, and following consultation with journal contributors, the Editors of Journal of Integrative Neuroscience (JIN) launched an Open Access initiative for JIN in 2018. This means that it is no longer necessary to have a subscription in order to read current JIN content online.

There are substantial costs associated with publishing a high quality journal such as JIN, including administration of the editorial process, production of the published version, and development of online functionality. Under a subscription-based model, these costs are mainly covered by charging libraries and individuals for access to the journal's contents. Under JIN's Open Access model, we aim to cover the costs of publication primarily through the use of an Article Processing Charge.

Starting from 2018, all JIN content is available online and is fully browsable and searchable. Articles published beginning from Volume 17 Issue 1 (2018) are under the terms and conditions of the CC BY license. JIN is not authorized to grant permission for material published under either license, as the authors retain copyright. However, depending on the intended use, permission may not be required at all.
