Scholarly Publishing: Palgrave Macmillan Launches Open Access Option for Monographs and Palgrave Pivot Publications
Palgrave Open offers authors and their funders the option to publish open access (OA) research across all publication formats. Palgrave Macmillan journal articles, monographs and Palgrave Pivot publications can now be made available with immediate open access upon publication.
Palgrave Open publishes OA content under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) License to support maximum dissemination and use.* Preferred by many research funding bodies, this license allows readers to alter, transform, or build upon the article and then distribute the resulting work as long as the original work is correctly cited. The CC BY license complies with a range of open access policies and allows authors to meet the public access requirements of many major funding bodies and institutions worldwide. Alternative Creative Commons licenses are available to authors on request.
Palgrave Macmillan is the only commercial publisher to offer this license across 3 publication outputs: journal articles, mid-form (Palgrave Pivot) and long-form (monograph) research.
Palgrave Open content will be freely available and searchable via Palgrave Macmillan’s journals website or award-winning ebook platform, Palgrave Connect.
