Salud Colectiva maintains a commitment to the policies of Open Access to scientific information, as it considers that both scientific publications as well as research projects funded by public resources should circulate freely without restrictions.

Since its release in 1999, UNESCO's Declaration on Science and the Use of Scientific Knowledge has advocated the “free flow of information” and “equal access to science.” The numerous declarations made thereafter and the increasing support of authors, editors, scientific publications and academic institutions have allowed a movement for Open Access to scientific production to take shape.

Diverse categories have emerged under the banner of the Open Access movement, for example the Open Access “Hybrid” Model: publications that, before making the contents freely available impose an embargo for a certain period of time in which access to those articles may only be achieved via a traditional subscription (pay-per-view). Another example is the Author Pays model in which certain publications pass the cost of editorial production onto the authors.

Salud Colectiva ratifies the Open Access model in which scientific publications are made freely available at no cost online, with no time embargos and with no publication costs transferred to the authors. This policy seeks to dismantle the economic barriers that have created inequalities in the access to both information and the ability to publish research results.

For this reason, Salud Colectiva does not charge anything to authors for the editing process and the publication of their articles in Spanish, nor for their later translation and publication in English, and is committed to making the articles available in Open Access indexing services and in the various online repositories that use Open Archives Initiative-Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) (See Indexing Services).

Furthermore, Salud Colectiva does not reserve the copyright of the article; this provides authors access to the final published versions both in Spanish and in English so they may include them in institutional repositories, personal blogs or any other electronic media, with the sole condition that they mention the original source of publication, in this case Salud Colectiva.
