Delayed Open Access

While CJHP’s Editorial, Point Counterpoint, and Commentary from the Presidential Team are immediately accessible upon publication, all other articles are embargoed for the duration of 6 months. A pay-per-view system has been introduced for embargoed articles.

Authors who wish to have their articles immediately accessible upon publication can do so by paying a $100 fee to forgo the embargo period. Simply complete the CJHP’s Authorship Fee Form and send it to
