MJA access policy

The Medical Journal of Australia (MJA) is a professional journal that is available by subscription.

Open access to research and Indigenous health articles

The MJA encourages the highest quality of research, and believes research must be able to be easily and rapidly disseminated to all who might benefit from it. From January 2012, all MJA research articles and case reports are open access.  The MJA also has a strong commitment to Australian Indigenous health, and makes all Indigenous health articles open access.

Non-subscribers may access the following content free of charge:

  • all research articles and case reports
  • Indigenous health articles
  • Editor's choice articles
  • guidelines
  • supplements
  • obituaries
  • tables of contents
  • abstracts and extracts
  • website search function
  • email alerts
From time to time, the Editor may make additional articles open access because of their public health importance.
MJA Careers and MJA InSight (the MJA’s weekly online newsletter) are free.
Access to all other article types, including editorials, perspectives, letters, clinical focus articles and reflections, is by subscription. Short-term online subscriptions are available for 7 days, or full subscriptions, with or without the print issue, for 1 year. Discounted subscriptions are available for students. Subscribe now
