Open Access Mandates

Compliance with Major Funding Agency Policies

A growing number of funding agencies now require that research articles they have funded must be made open access. This may be either by mandating deposit in repositories after an embargo period or by stipulating that research is published as open access. Publishing in StemJournal complies with all major funding agency requirements.

Gold Open Access Publishing in StemJournal
The StemJournal open access option helps authors to comply with major funder mandates. It allows authors the choice of paying a fee to make their article publicly available on the journal’s website immediately upon publication. All open access articles are published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial License (CC BY-NC).

If requested by the author, Research Councils UK (RCUK) and Wellcome Trust funded open access articles will be published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY). After acceptance of their article, the author can select the open access CC BY publishing license.

Authors are welcome to submit their article into their institute's or funding agency's repository, such as (European) Pubmed Central, after final publication without embargo.
