Harvard FXB Health and Human Rights Consortium

Supporting Open Access Publication

Health and Human Rights disseminates research and scholarship that supports the view that health is a human right. Since 2008, it has had an open access policy, removing financial barriers so that readers everywhere in the world have access to information. Furthermore, the journal holds a unique position in academic publishing because neither does it impose fees on authors for publication.* This unusual arrangement is made possible through the support of the Harvard FXB Health and Human Rights Consortium, our publisher Harvard University Press, and the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights.

Consortium members are committed to health and human rights in their research and teaching, practice, programs, and policy. Health and Human Rights values their commitment to open access and freedom of information.

Further information about the Consortium is available here: Harvard FXB Consortium HHR_2019.

*A publishing fee is applied only when authors have received research or university grants to publish in open access journals.
