The Society for Cultural Anthropology, in March 2013, announced plans for Cultural Anthropology to become an open access journal. Starting with its February 2014 issue (volume 29, number 1), new issues of the journal became freely available online through the CA website, and plans are in the works to make back issues available as well. Cultural Anthropology is the first established, high-impact journal in anthropology to offer open access to its published research. We hope our experience will provide the American Anthropological Association as a whole, as well as other journals in the social and human sciences, with valuable guidance as we together explore alternative publishing models.
