This is a series of six question we would like those of you who have some responsibility for the production of an open access journal to try to answer. Please respond in the comments below. Thanks!
See the full List of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies
- How Open Access is your journal? 100%? Backfile only? Occasional free issues? Online only, or can readers download and share files?
- What kind of Open Access is your journal (green or gold)?
- How do you pay for making your journal Open Access? Do you charge authors an Open Access fee upon publication of their work? Do you receive support from your sponsoring organization/institution? Is it covered by membership fees? Do you have an endowment? Something else?
- Has your journal always been Open Access? If not, did your journal/institution take a financial hit when making your content (some or all of it) Open Access?
- Once your journal became Open Access, has its availability in libraries grown, decreased, or remained about the same?
- Now that your journal is Open Access, do you still produce a print edition? If so, is that also free to readers, or do they pay for a subscription for print?
