ASME Open Access

ASME is driven by global engineering communities to ensure high-quality, rigorously peer-reviewed content is accessible and freely available online for everyone. ASME journals provide extensive, diverse indexes of research articles that span the broad spectrum of engineering topics. 

ASME supports compliance with government and funder mandates for Open Access publication, including Plan S for European-funded research. 
ASME offers authors the option to publish their papers hybrid Open Access across all our journals or in the fully Open Access ASME Open Journal of Engineering with payment of an Article Publishing Charge (APC). ASME continues to offer publication at no cost to an author through traditional subscription access.
