BMJ Open Access Agreements

A number of institutions have open access agreements with BMJ which can either cover the full cost of open access publishing for authors at participating institutions or can allow authors to receive a discount of the Article Processing Charge (APC).

Learn about the types of open access agreements at BMJ.

We use Ringgold ID to determine your institutional affiliation and entitlements. During your submission, when entering your affiliation, Ringgold connected institutions will automatically appear listed. Read more about Ringgold ID and why it is important.

Please be aware that your institution’s OA Agreement with BMJ must be active, with sufficient funds, on acceptance of your paper.
