3. AEU'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 AEU launched an Open Access initiative for AEU in 1 May 2022. This means that manuscripts which submitted from 1 May 2022 and accepted after peer review will be published in AEU with open access under the CC BY license.
There are substantial costs associated with publishing a high quality journal such as AEU, 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 AEU's Open Access model, we aim to cover the costs of publication primarily through the use of an Article Processing Charge. For details, see: Article Processing Charge.
