Open Access Policy

oekom is happy to contribute to Open access, the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer-reviewed scholarly journal articles. 

Green Road to Open Access

Authors can archive a version of the article (PDF) for free public use on their personal or institutional websites and/or in their institutional repository.


GAIA Hybrid Open Access

With GAIA Hybrid Open Access, we offer our authors to have their article made publicly available via IngentaConnect and publisher's website with full open access against a basic charge.

How it works
If you opt for GAIA Hybrid Open Access, your article is freely available 24/7 to everybody around the world with access to the internet. Once your article is accepted for publication in GAIA, we will inform you about our Hybrid Open Access option.

If you decide to publish as hybrid open access
Shortly before publication of the print issue, your article will be freely available for download on our Ingenta site to everybody in the world. It will also appear in our print issue, available to all individual and institutional subscribers.

Pricing
Our services include organization of the review and publishing process, professional language editing, layout and graphics. GAIA articles are abstracted and indexed in various scientific databases (including Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Science; Social Science Citation Index; Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA), CAB Abstracts, EBSCO and Scopus) and our editors attend relevant conferences and meetings to market our journal and thus the publications of our authors. Further costs are involved in the process of printing, distribution and hosting. To maintain our high standards of quality while covering our costs we offer Open Access per published article as follows:

• Forum section: 400 EUR (VAT not included)
• Research section: 850 EUR (VAT not included).
