Open Access for AMS Journals and BAMS

Open Access Option for AMS Journal Authors

For a one-time fee of $800, authors who have paid page charges in full can choose to make the full contents of the final published version of their paper immediately available to all, subscribers and nonsubscribers, on the AMS Journals Online site through AMS “Open Choice.”

Starting with AMS journal articles published in 2017 issues, access to the full text of Early Online Releases (EORs) and published articles will be restricted to subscribers for one year from the final publication date (though Earth Interactions as well as all Open Choice content will remain fully available immediately upon publication). As always, abstracts for published manuscripts and EORs will be available to nonsubscribers and subscribers alike.

Journal authors can request Open Choice when submitting a manuscript. If an article has already been accepted, the selection of Open Choice should be indicated when completing the Page Charge Form. The fee will be included when the paper is invoiced.

Some funders require that publications resulting from research they funded carry the open access CC BY reuse license. Please see the Reuse License web page for more information.

Open Access for BAMS

All peer-reviewed articles and online meeting summaries accepted for BAMS, and their corresponding EORs, are freely accessible through the Journals Online site (http://journals.ametsoc.org). The print version of BAMS includes news and professional information in addition to peer-reviewed content. The BAMS digital edition replicates the print version of BAMS, and is a benefit available only to individual members of AMS.
