  • The article will have the OPEN indicator published and the Creative Commons license published on the article to make it visible to readers that the article is open access
  • The final version of article will be submitted to PubMed Central as open access on the authors’ behalf

All open access articles are subject to peer review, editorial oversight and the journals production process. More information on additional steps to publishing your article as open access can be found on the Wolters Kluwer Open Access Process page.
