Heyttu journals e.g. Annals of Chinese Medicine apply the Hybrid method with open access (Gold) and traditional publishing method. Authors need to choose either with Open Access or Traditional Publishing.
1. Open Access
Open access (OA) refers to free, unrestricted online access to research outputs such as journal articles and books. OA content is open to all, with no access fees. OA content can reach more reader and faster popularization.
Most of the journals published with Heyttu follow the guidelines of Gold Open Access. The OA articles on Heyttu journals apply the Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-ND 4.0). Read more about the policy in English/中文/Dansk/Deutsch.
If an author selects the mode of OA publication, the author holds the copyright and agree to make the submission open to all and needs to pay an article-processing charge (APC) of 4800 DKK.
2. Traditional Publishing
The papers are published and possibly printed with a set number of issues each year. Readers, both individuals and institutions, can subscribe to the journal for an annual fee. Single issues or articles can usually be purchased. There is no APC fee if an author chooses to publish with the traditional model. But the author needs to transfer the copyright of his/her paper to Heyttu journals.
