Cardiology in the Young is a hybrid journal, meaning that it publishes on a subscription basis but provides authors with options to make their article open access in two different ways.
Under the Green Open Access policy for Science, Technology and Medicine (STM) journals authors can archive certain versions of their articles six months after publication - the submitted version under review or the accepted (peer reviewed) version, but not the final version of record - in an institutional or non-commercial subject repository, or on their personal or departmental websites. This allows authors to comply with the open access mandates of many funders and institutions. For more details see the Green Open Access policy page.
Under Gold Open Access the author can publish under a Creative Commons license, enabling anyone to access and redistribute the content and, depending upon the license, re-use the content in new or derivative works with attribution. The terms of re-use for Gold Open Access content are stated in the copyright line.
Gold Open Access is supported by an article processing charge (APC) typically paid for by the author's funding body or institution. For more details on APCs and the payment process, see the Gold Open Access for journals page.
Cambridge University Press has made a number of read and publish agreements which cover the APCs of authors from affiliated institutions publishing in hybrid or fully Open Access journals, depending on the agreement. This is available for corresponding authors based at affiliated institutions which are part of our Read and Publish agreements.
