PeerJ Launches with a New Business Model for Open Access Publishing
by Abby Clobridge
While discussions of open access (OA) have been increasingly in the news in 2012, most discussions outside of the library and publishing world have been centered on OA for public good—mainly, the benefits of free and immediate global access via the internet to new knowledge as it is produced—not how to pay for OA. While publishers have begun experimenting with various cost-recovery models, no single strategy has yet to emerge in this space. PeerJ, launched on June 12, 2012 amid a great deal of buzz, introduced a new approach into the mix with a two-pronged strategy that includes membership fees to cover costs and ongoing peer-review responsibilities for authors to retain membership.
