Open Access (OA) has become an important way to make research findings freely available for anyone to access and view. Cambridge Open serves authors and the wider community by publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed OA content. We support and promote all forms of OA that are financially sustainable. Our introduction to open access page provides some essential information about the types of OA we offer.

We publish Gold OA journals and books, and we work with publishing partners such as learned societies to develop OA for different communities.

We also support Green OA (also called Green archiving) across our journals and books programmes, allowing authors to deposit content in PubMed Central and other institutional and subject-specific repositories. Cambridge Open allows authors to comply with the Gold and Green OA requirements of major funders such as the Wellcome Trust, RCUK, HHMI, NIH, Hefce and many other agencies.
