4 What is a fully or hybrid OA journal?

A hybrid journal is a subscription-based journal offering the authors the choice to publish the accepted article as open access.
Springer’s hybrid open access program is called Open Choice. For more information please visit www.springer.com/openchoice.
Fully OA journals (and books) on the other hand publish solely open access content. Springer publishes fully OA journals under the SpringerOpen and BioMed Central brands.
