Open access and preprints

Open access

  • When we select journals for publication, we will prioritize publishing in journals that offer an Open Access option. However, we realize that sometimes the most appropriate journal for a particular paper will be one that does not offer this option.
  • When project funding is not available for open access publication fees, Dr. Poldrack will cover these fees using unrestricted funds.


  • All papers should be uploaded to a relevant preprint archive prior to or upon submission, unless the target journal does not allow preprint publication.
  • Our general policy is to avoid publishing in journals that do not allow preprint posting, unless there is a very strong reason to do so.
