    Nucleic Acids Research journal initiates 'Open Access Experiment'
    Submitted by Gary Van Domselaar; posted on Friday, December 19, 2003


    The annual database issue of NAR has been released as 'Open Access' so you don't have to have a subscription to read the articles. From their website:

    ``The advent of online publication has greatly improved access to scientific content on a global scale. This has led to calls from the academic community for research to be made freely available online immediately upon publication, without the barrier of paid subscription to access. In response to these calls, and following consultation with journal contributors, Oxford University Press and the Editors of Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) have initiated an Open Access experiment with NAR. The project's goal is to explore moving away from the current subscription-funded model towards an author-funded publication model, in which authors pay to have their papers published in NAR and made freely available online. If the experiment proves successful, it is envisaged that the journal would gradually move to an Open Access model over a transitional period of 4-5 years, at which point all research published in NAR would be funded in such a way. Moving the entire journal to an Open Access model would mean that individuals and institutions would no longer need to pay for a subscription to NAR in order to access the online version.''
