About us

Our publishing program offers a suite of open access solutions that meet the needs of researchers, helping them maximize the visibility of global healthcare research.


Open access content is immediately and permanently available online and allows users to link, read, download, store, use, and data-mine with minimal restrictions.


While the submission and review process follow the traditional process, there are additional forms and steps taken in order to publish your work as open access.


Wolters Kluwer can offer you a range of flexible open access models if you are considering launching an open access journal or transfer your open access journal to an established publisher.


All articles published in open access journals are freely available to readers. There is no subscription fee to access content.
