What Does Open Access Week Mean for You?

Open Access to journal articles

Did you know that the Texas Heart Institute Journal is available online for free through PMC (formerly PubMed Central)? Open access journals that make their content available at no charge to readers are celebrated this week. Publishing a peer-reviewed journal is never easy, but journals like THI’s are committed to making the latest research available without payment barriers. Next time you submit a paper, consider open access alternatives like the Texas Heart Iinstitute Journal, or don’t sign away all of your copy rights so that you can archive and share your own article. Take some time this week to learn more (from SPARC) about your author rights and how to submit an author addendum to the publisher to retain more rights to your own work.
