Nature Publishing Offering Open Access Options for More Journals
Nature Publishing Group (NPG) has just announced the addition of seven more journals to its list of of titles offering an open access option, bringing the total to 25 for this publisher. Authors can choose to publish their articles as open access by payment of an article processing charge (APC). APC charges vary according to the selectivity of the journal; more information can be found on each journal page. The new titles include American Journal of Gastroenterology, Bone Marrow Transplantation, Gene Therapy, International Journal of Obesity, Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism, Oncogene, and Leukemia. Authors are offered a choice of licenses (including one allowing for derivative works), as well as immediate and permanent public access to the final published version of their paper on nature.com and in PubMed Central and the rights to self-archive the final published version of their paper for public access immediately upon publication. Nature's self-archiving policy provides for authors publishing in any of the 43 Nature titles to comply with funder mandates.
