CMAJ drops paywall - CMAJ News

CMAJ drops paywall - CMAJ News | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Starting today, all new Canadian Medical Association Journal content is now freely available online, with older material becoming available on March 1, 2020.

Previously, CMAJ research articles, editorials and news stories were freely available, and other content including commentaries and practice articles were only fully available after one year.

Dr. Andreas Laupacis, editor-in-chief of the journal, says providing immediate free access to content will make the journal more relevant to discussions about improving Canada’s healthcare system.

“Some of the material in CMAJ that is useful to public discussion around important issues with our healthcare system were only available to CMA members and I think they are of broader interest to members of the public, patients and policymakers,” he says.
