Penn Press has a growing open-access program in journals and is the publisher of four open-access journals:
- Observational Studies
- Pasados: Recovering History, Imagining Latinidad (starting in 2024)
- Journal of Disaster Studies (starting in 2024)
- Manuscript Studies (starting in 2024)
We support these open-access models:
- Platinum/Diamond Open Access (funded by a sponsor)
- Gold Open Access. For individual authors who have open-access mandates, we accept an author-processing charge (APC) to free a single article. Please contact email@example.com to arrange payment or request a waiver.
- Green Open Access. Our authors can post copies of their work on their personal websites, on noncommercial discipline-specific servers of preprints or postprints, and within noncommercial digital repositories of nonprofit institutions with which they are currently affiliated. For more information, please visit our page on self-archiving and digital repositories.
- Select journals have open-access content as part of Project MUSE’s Subscribe to Open Program. This program opens current content without article processing charges if sales of Project MUSE’s collection reach a minimum sustainability threshold. Participating journals:
Our Open Access policies are responsive to changes in current research policy and we are happy to talk with authors to ensure compliance with mandates. Our author agreements for open-access articles allow for content to be distributed under a Creative Commons license. Please see your author agreement for details.
