From a press release issued by Maney Publishing on Feb. 9, 2010:
Maney Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of a new open access (OA) business model, MORE OpenChoice. Twenty-four materials science and engineering journals and fifteen health science titles are initially included in MORE OpenChoice, with the intention to expand this to humanities journals in the future. MORE OpenChoice represents a new business model which will co-exist with Maney’s traditional subscription business in disciplines where funding agencies require their research work to be put in the public domain.
MORE OpenChoice has been developed in response to the changing requirements of customers. In a dynamic business and with the exciting prospects that digitization of content brings, this is just one of several initiatives being introduced to ensure that Maney continues to attract the best research which when published achieves the maximum impact. MORE OpenChoice papers will provide additional momentum in optimizing dissemination of, and access to, research in specific disciplines and in particular parts of the world.
Full details of Maney’s OA model are available on the website at www.maney.co.uk/moreopenchoice
