Most subscribers receive the journal free of charge if they are designated as psychiatric clinicians in provider databases such as the American Medical Association's masterfile.[1]

The journal publishes a number of sponsored supplements, which require registration to access on-line, but are otherwise free of charge, unlike the main journal. Although these supplements may be perceived as more biased by commercial interests, and are subjected to a different peer review process than articles in the journal proper, they nevertheless have a comparable number of citations.[1]
