Open Access at JAMA Network

Among the critical objectives of the JAMA Network is to publish and disseminate research, review, and opinion of the highest quality to a global audience. Our commitment to open access affirms this goal by making our content discoverable, widely disseminated and accessible, and free for everyone to read.

License Information

Authors who wish to publish research articles in JAMA Network journals will be offered a Creative Commons (CC) license in exchange for payment of an article processing charge. The CC licenses, often required by funders, allow authors to retain copyright of their research articles.

Information provided by the author during the submission process will determine the appropriate CC license. Most authors will receive a CC-BY license, which offers the broadest reuse rights. Authors who report a commercial funding source will receive a CC-BY-NC-ND license.

  • CC-BY License: Permits others to distribute, remix, tweak, and build on the work, even commercially, without permission, provided that credit is given to the original authors and journal.
  • CC-BY-NC-ND License: Permits others to distribute the work without permission, provided that credit is given to the original authors and journal and that the article is not altered or used commercially.
