American Society for Cell Biology Invests in New OA Model

The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is using a new library subscription model, Subscribe to Open (S2O), for its peer-reviewed basic research journal Molecular Biology of the Cell (MBoC). S2O will give readers open access to the journal in 2021 while keeping author costs low, because it will still bring in subscription revenue.

According to ASCB, “Here’s how S2O works: existing institutional subscribers will receive a 5% discount off of the regular subscription price if they agree to participate. If all existing subscribers agree to participate in S2O by early 2021, the journal’s content will become completely open access for that year. If the plan is successful for 2021, the offer will be repeated annually. S2O has been successfully implemented by other publications, but MBoC is the first research journal to experiment with the model.”
