Writing for Publication: Education Journals and Other Disciplines

Writing is Sharing: Resources for new and seasoned authors

Considering Open Access Journals?

Both well-established and emerging publishers have developed various models for open-access publishing.  All such models require ongoing support to be sustainable.  Publishers may choose to have authors, their institutions or grant funding pay a fee to have an article freely available worldwide.  The amount of the fee varies greatly from no fee to thousands of dollars.  Some journals contain a mix of open-access and subscribed content, and others are entirely open-access. 

Check journal FAQs for any author fees, and also see the tab about Predatory Publishers.
