Support Open-Access Funding

Demography is an open access journal, meaning content can be accessed without subscription fees or article open-access fees. In adopting this model, the Population Association of America has made the journal’s research available to policy decision makers, the general public, and the global community of population studies scholars. Population researchers can more readily access, cite, and disseminate the journal’s content.


Demography’s open-access funding model relies on financial support from Community Partnerslibraries and other institutions who believe in keeping this critical scholarship open to all.


We are asking members to reach out to their institutions to ask them to contribute funds to support Demography.  

  1. Determine whether your institution is a current Community Partner. If so, consider thanking them.
  2. If your institution does not support Demography, take a look at this sample email and customize it for your institution.
