Gold Open Access
Specific journals of Akadémiai Kiadó publish Open Access articles only. Their costs shall be covered by the Article Processing Charge (APC) paid by the author in each case.

Optional Open Access
Akadémiai Kiadó provides a possibility to publish Open Access articles in its subscription based journals. It is an option for the author to pay the Article Processing Charge and have the final full text version of his/her article published as an Open Access one.
Beside new manuscripts Optional Open Access can work with papers already published. Authors can ask for opening their archive article if they pay the article processing charge
