Open Access Option

Opt to Publish Your Work as Open Access

The IOS Press Open Library offers authors open access options. By selecting this, the article will be freely available from the moment it is published, also in the pre-press module. The article processing charges are paid in the form of an open access fee. Authors will receive an open access order form upon acceptance of their article. Open access is entirely optional.

See the for more information about the open access options available to you, and also to check if there are any institutional agreements that you might be eligible for.

By default, articles published in Environmental Policy and Law are available only to institutions and individuals with access rights. However, the journal offers all authors the option to purchase open access publication for their article as part of the  IOS Press Open Library. This means that the final published version will be freely available to anyone worldwide, indefinitely, under a Creative Commons license and without the need to purchase access to the article. This is also referred to as “gold” open access.

Gold open access pricing
Authors who choose gold open access publication will be subject to an article publication charge of € 1250 / US$ 1450 for publication under the CC BY-NC 4.0 license or € 1850 / US$ 2080 for publication under the CC BY 4.0 license. Pricing is exclusive of possible taxes. After an article is accepted for publication, the corresponding author will be informed regarding the open access option during the production stages, and will have the opportunity to purchase open access for their article. It could be that the open access fee of an article is waived completely due an institutional agreement IOS Press has with the corresponding authors' institution. Please check the IOS Press institutional agreements page for details.

Green open access
Authors who do not make use of the gold open access option may still make their article freely available using self-archiving, also referred to as green open access. Authors may make their final accepted manuscript available for free download from their personal or institutional website or institutional archive. This model is free for the author.
