About Open Access
E-edition of Journal of Integrative Medicine (JIM) is published by Elsevier (Singapore) Pte Ltd. In addition to articles published on a subscription basis, JIM also includes open access articles.
What is open access?
Open access is the free, unrestricted online access to the results of scholarly research. An open access article is made open access immediately on publication and freely available on our platform (http://www.jcimjournal.com/jim/; https://www.sciencedirect.com/journal/journal-of-integrative-medicine/).
What benefits Open Access can have for authors?
Higher visibility: Your studies can be found and downloaded freely from the internet by anyone around the world, so the contents can have more opportunities to attract more attentions than non-open access contents.
Quicker publishing: Open access papers can be published online as soon as it was accepted by our journal, which fits the scientific requirement.
Comply with funder mandates: More and more funders around the world support researchers to publish their studies as open access.
How to choose Open Access in JIM？
If an author selects the open access option, Elsevier will charge the author a publication fee for gold open access ("the Open Access Fee") following acceptance of an article for publication. The publisher will then make those articles for which an Open Access Fee has been charged ("Open Access Articles") available free of charge at the point of use both to subscribers and non-subscribers on Elsevier's ScienceDirect or successor website, and, as determined by the publisher, on the publisher's other electronic platforms that contain the journal.
The Open Access Fee will be USD$1800 per Open Access Article.
