Open Access Publishing
In response to the need for some authors to publish  their work as Open Access, Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance is now a ‘hybrid’ journal. We offer Open Access publishing for $1500 per article plus all applicable fees such as color, excess figures, tables, and online material (see this Publication Fees form (updated April 2023) for more details). We also publish articles for no fee, other than the applicable fees. Authors are free to post their accepted manuscript in an institutional repository without paying any fees. Articles are free online after a 1-yr embargo. They remain free for 5 years. Then they return to pay-per-view, but are always available and searchable online through Ingenta.
