    Open access publishing has expanded dramatically over the last decade. For the most part, this works to everyone's advantage, enabling important, cutting-edge science to get to readers sooner than by more traditional publication methods. JAN supports open access initiatives including its periodic Virtual Issues program and providing a full open access publication option. Many journals and respectable publishing houses offer similar choices and there are also open-access-only publishers whose publishing standards match those of JAN. However, this is not the case for all open access only publishers.
