Open Access

R&D is a fully Open Access journal, which means that all content is freely accessible online. Articles published in Open Access can be expected to receive substantially higher numbers of views and citations. All articles in R&D are published under a non-exclusive Open Access license (CC-BY 4.0) in exchange for Brill’s standard Open Access Article Publication Charge. These charges are embedded in a solidarity model that seeks to ensure both equitable access to published articles (by publishing the journal in Open Access) and equitable opportunities to publish. As outlined in the first issue’s introductory article, R&D’s Editorial Committee

considered it non-negotiable to publish the journal in open access. To cover the journal’s immediate publication costs, we hence have developed a solidarity model based on article processing charges. In some parts of the world, financing for open access publication is increasingly available, be it through specific open access funds, from project budgets or through institutional support. Those scholars that have access to such funding will be required to pay article processing charges for their articles. At the same time, it is the journal’s firm policy that these costs should not be a hindrance for anyone wanting to publish in the journal. For those authors that are not able to pay the full article processing charges or who are not able to finance article processing charges at all, the article processing charges can be substantially reduced or waived.¹

The Editorial Committee hence appeals to colleagues particularly to make use of their institutional, national or project funder’s Open Access publication funds where such possibilities are available. Those scholars who do not have access to publication funding can request a reduction or waiver of the Article Publishing Charges upon submission. If in doubt or in case of any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Office:
