Open Access

Journal of British Studies 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.

(1) Under our Green Open Access policy for Humanities and Social Science (HSS) journals, authors can archive certain versions of their articles in an institutional or non-commercial subject repository, or on their personal or departmental websites. The archived version can be the Accepted Manuscript (after peer review) or an earlier version, but not the final published PDF (the Version of Record). This allows authors to comply with the open access mandates of many funders and institutions.

·       For more details, see our Green Open Access policy page.

(2) 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 of the article.

Gold Open Access is supported by an article processing charge (APC) typically paid by the author’s funding body or institution.

Social Sharing

Journals participating in the Cambridge Core Share program allow a read-only version of the final published PDF to be shared and easily accessed following generation of a link or shareable PDF. The link or PDF can be freely shared on social media sites and scholarly collaboration networks to enhance both the impact and discoverability of research.
