There are 3 types of Open Access articles, which is determined by the type of licensing agreement chosen during the submission process. Below is the author's cost associated with the license chosen.
- AHA License Agreement—CC-BY-NC-ND - Non-Commercial and No Modifications or Adaptations (Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial-NoDervis License) This license only allows others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they cannot change them in any way or use them commercially. The cost to publish this article is a flat fee of $3,200.
- AHA License Agreement—CC-BY - Creative Commons Attribution License The license lets other distribute, remix, tweak, and build on your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. This is the most accommodating of licenses offered. Recommended for maximum dissemination and use of licensed materials. (Note that authors funded by RCUK or Wellcome Trust may choose the CC-BY license if they agree to pay the article publication charge (APC) and commercial reuse of the article isn’t a factor.) The cost to publish this article is a flat fee of $4,700.
- AHA License Agreement—CC-BY-NC - Non-Commercial (Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License) This license is only available to authors funded by the RCUK or Wellcome Trust. Authors funded by RCUK or Wellcome Trust should choose the CC-BY-NC license if they do not agree to pay the article publication charge (APC; instead, page, color, and additional word/page charges would apply) or they would like to limit the commercial reuse of their content. This license lets others remix, tweak, and build on your work noncommercially and, although their new works must also acknowledge you and be noncommercial, they do not have to license their derivative works on the same terms. The cost to publish this article is the same a traditional article.
