Trial of open access launched at the Royal Society Monday, 26 June 2006 11:27 amPosted by Dongmei in open access, science, science related news.
The Royal Society has launched a trial of an open access journal service, which will allow people to read new scientific papers free of charge immediately after they are published on the web. The new service offers authors the opportunity to pay a fee to have their paper made freely available on the web immediately if it is accepted for publication by any Royal Society journal.
The new open access journal service, called EXiS Open Choice, is being offered to authors of papers that are accepted for publication in any of the Royal Society's seven journals. The Royal Society publishes the world's oldest peer-reviewed scientific journal, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.
