Description

We want to share the current model and an update on the project with attendees.

Demography now a Fully Open Access Journal

The Population Association of America (PAA) and Duke University Press have entered into a unique publishing collaboration for the journal Demography. The journal is now openly available to all, with no paywalls or access barriers, starting with its 2021 volume.

The acquisition of Demography represents a major publishing development - we have transitioned the journal from a subscription model to a fully open access model.

Demography resonates with the mission of Duke University Press and the global moment

Population research is critical to the future of a healthy and prosperous world and the importance of reliable peer-reviewed information has never been more essential than it is right now. One of the world’s leading journals in population research, Demography has a 3.984 Impact Factor in 2020 per JCR (#2 in its category), with 9,798 citations in 2020 per JCR 2020 (#1 in its category). As a mission-driven publisher, we see that Demography’s articles provide data to address issues of today including equity and inclusion, global health, and climate crisis.

Seeking Long-Term Funding through Community Partnership

We have a community-based open-access funding model in partnership with population research centers, foundations, academic research libraries, and individuals. Partners of all levels ($100 to $4,000 annually) help to cover the journal’s publishing costs and help us to disseminate its content as widely as possible.
