JOMH’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 Men’s Health (JOMH) launched an Open Access initiative for JOMH in 2021. This means that it is no longer necessary to have a subscription in order to read current JOMH content online.

There are substantial costs associated with publishing a high quality journal such as JOMH, 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 JOMH's Open Access model, we aim to cover the costs of publication primarily through the use of an Article Processing Charge.
