Open Access at Cambridge


Cambridge University Press supports all journals publishing models that are scalable and financially sustainable, and able to maintain both the highest quality and the stewardship of the authoritative Version of Record.

Under Cambridge Open, we are offering the following open access models:

We support both Gold and Green

Gold Open Access is supported via Cambridge Open and we are also listed as a ‘Green’ publisher in the SHERPA/RoMEO database of publishers’ copyright and self-archiving policies.

Green Open Access is covered by the vast majority of our standard Copyright forms which automatically allow our authors to archive their Accepted Manuscripts in institutional repositories, on personal webpages and in subject repositories such as PubMed Central.

We’re fully compliant

Cambridge allows authors to comply with the requirements of the The Wellcome Trust, RCUK, HHMI, NIH, HEFCE’s policy for REF inclusion and many other agencies. In addition, the Terms and Conditions of the Cambridge Journals standard publishing agreement allows authors to place a copy of their Accepted Manuscript in a variety of places, including PubMed Central (PMC). If the paper is to be published as Open Access, we offer authors the option to choose from a variety of CC licences.
