Articles published 2015 and later are open access
JAAE is indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index, which is part of the Web of Science database owned by Clarivate Analytics. CiteScore 2022: 2.4
Note that JAAE articles are released on a First View basis – as and when they are ready for publication – and interested readers can sign up for alerts here and follow the journal on Twitter @JAAE_Journal.
Authors are reminded that JAAE is Open Access and that an increasing proportion of authors are covered by agreements that exempt them from paying an article processing charge. Read this page on Open Access options in JAAE to find out about institutional Read & Publish agreements and the discretionary waiver process for unfunded authors. You can check whether your institution has a Read & Publish agreement via the waiver tool on the Cambridge site. If you have questions about these “Read & Publish” agreements, contact our Cambridge publisher Andrew Hyde firstname.lastname@example.org.
