UKSG's Official Journal Goes OA

The UKSG organization for scholarly communication announced that its electronic-only journal Insights is now platinum open access (OA), meaning authors will not be required to pay article-processing charges (APCs). Starting with volume 27, number 1 (March 2014), all forthcoming as well as back issues will be fully OA.

Insights, which is published three times a year, contains articles by librarians, publishers, vendors, and industry experts who discuss the global knowledge community. It also features conference reviews and editorial comment and features.

“Many pieces of research have demonstrated that open access articles receive around 50% more full text accesses and PDF downloads than subscription access articles, and that they are cited earlier and more often than non-OA articles,” says Steve Sharp, Insights’ co-editor. “With Insights content indexed in Scopus, we anticipate that a move to open access will herald an upsurge in interest.”
