The move is designed to accommodate authors who need to comply with specific funding mandates. Authors who request immediate open access to the publication will pay an article publication fee of $3,000 at the time of final acceptance of their submission. Writers can withdraw an article after acceptance but without a refund.
According to the SNMMI, under the immediate open access option:
- The final accepted, peer-reviewed, precopyedited work will be made freely available on the JNM website in the ahead-of-print section.
- Upon final publication, the ahead-of-print version will be replaced by the final copyedited, published article, which will remain freely available on the JNM website.
- All versions are published under a Creative Commons attribution 4.0 international license that allows users to share and adapt the authors' work, provided appropriate credit is given.
