Open Access is required by NIH Public Access Policy for grant-funded research.
See our HSL guides:
Open Access does not mean a journal is predatory.
Not all Open Access journals are fee-based.
Fee-based publication does not mean a journal is predatory.
Not all journals with questionable practices are predatory.
You can still submit to Carolina Digital Repository or PubMed Central (PMC) for free open access.
