Press release: Open access options on 15 more NPG journals

by | Dec 20, 2010 | 0 comments

Nature Publishing Group (NPG) is pleased to announce open access options for fifteen further journals. Forty-one journals published by NPG now offer authors an open access option or are wholly open access, including 80% (40) of its 50 academic and society journals. In total, NPG currently publishes 83 journals, of which 49% offer an open access option to authors.

Authors publishing in these journals can choose to make their article open access on payment of an article processing charge (APC). APCs vary, depending on the selectivity of the journal, the amount it publishes and associated rejection rate. Full details are available on each journal’s website. Authors who opt to pay the APC will benefit from: a choice of licenses, including one that allows derivative works; immediate and permanent access for all to the final published version of their paper on and in PubMed Central; the rights to self-archive the final published version of their paper for public access immediately on publication.

In 2009, NPG introduced open access options on twelve of its academic journals, and in May 2010 on a further seven journals. Launched in April 2010, Nature Communications is the first Nature-branded online-only journal with an open access option.

NPG also publishes three fully open access journals: Cell Death and Disease, Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology, and Molecular Systems Biology. Cell Death & Disease, launched in January 2010, is the open access sister title to Cell Death & Differentiation. Clinical and Translational Gastroenterology, which published its first article in October 2010, is the open access sister title to American Journal of Gastroenterology. Launched in 2005, Molecular Systems Biology is published in association with the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and has a 2009 Impact Factor of 12.125. Further open access journals will launch in 2011, including: Blood Cancer Journal, Nutrition & Diabetes and Oncogenesis.

NPG’s self-archiving policy ensures that authors of original research papers can comply with funder mandates for public access, regardless of which NPG journal they publish in. In addition, NPG offers a free Manuscript Deposition Service into PubMed Central and UK PubMed Central on 43 of its titles.
