Open access/Archiving

Funder Compliance: UKRI, Wellcome, and NIHR

We comply fully with the requirements of these funders by offering the Green Open Access option (Route 2).

Where required by their funder, authors retain the right to distribute their author accepted manuscript (AAM), such as via an institutional and/or subject repository (e.g. EuropePMC), under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licence for release no later than the date of first online publication. 

The accepted manuscript (also known as the ‘postprint’) is the version of the work that has been accepted by the journal following peer review and includes all amendments made during that process, but which has not yet been branded, typeset, or copyedited by the publisher in any way. 


All Equinox journals also offer the GOLD option, whereby, subject to payment of an article processing fee and following normal peer review, their paper is published Open Access.  See details of that policy here including fees. 

In addition, the journal publishes editorials and reviews and from time to time, other material open access.  This material may not be reproduced, amended or in any way altered. It may not be used in classroom texts or any other form of commercial or non-commercial reproduction. For permission to reuse any material from the journal, please contact Val Hall.
