JINS Open Access Policy

The NIH Public Access Policy ensures that the public has access to the published results of NIH-funded research. Implemented in April 7, 2008, this policy requires that the final peer-reviewed and accepted version of the author's manuscript of any research resulting from NIH-funded activities must be submitted to the PubMed Central (PMC) repository. The PMC record and the author's final version of the manuscript should be made available to the public within 12 months of the definitive version of the article being published. For more information on the NIH policy, please consult

Cambridge University Press, the publisher of JINS, is in full compliance with NIH policy. For complete details about publishing open access articles in JINS, please review the instructions for contributing authors here.

Authors in JINS have two options for publishing their NIH-funded work:


    Authors may publish their paper under a fully Open Access agreement, upon payment of a one-off Article Processing Charge. In this case, the final published Version of Record will be made freely available to all in perpetuity under a Creative Commons license, enabling its reuse and re-distribution. This Open Access option is only offered to authors upon acceptance of an article for publication.

    Authors choosing the Open Access option are required to complete the Open Access Transfer of Copyright form (available here). More information about Open Access in the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society can be found here. The current APC rate to publish an article Open Access is £1,780 / $2,835.

    Please note: APC collection is managed on behalf of Cambridge University Press by RightsLink, who will contact authors following acceptance of their paper.

    Green Open Access is when content is made freely available by the author. This is achieved by depositing the article on the author's web page or in a suitable public repository, often after a specified embargo period. Please see the table below for a summary of where an author published in the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society may deposit versions of their article:

    Please see the Transfer of Copyright form for further terms and conditions.

    Please note: Websites such as 'ResearchGate' or '' are social media sites, and as such fall under that category within the policy. This means that neither the Accepted Manuscript or the Version of Record may be posted on such sites in its entirety, however authors are free to upload the abstract of their paper.
  • Posting your Article on PubMed Central:

    If you have published your article via Open Access within JINS, the publisher will post your article on PubMed Central if the work was funded by relevant funders such as NIH, Wellcome, and several others, detailed here (Method B on the PMC submission guidelines).

    However, in all other cases, it is the responsibility of the author to post their article on PMC if they have received any NIH awards. Please click here to determine applicability.

    Under the current terms and conditions, you may submit the Accepted Manuscript version of your article to PubMed Central immediately after the article has first been published online. You may also post the published version of your article (Version of Record) on PubMed one year after online publication.

    Please click here to follow NIH instructions on how to submit your Accepted Manuscript to PubMed Central, and follow Method C instructions.
