Annual Reviews Converts Select Journals to OA
Annual Reviews transferred the 2020 volume of the Annual Review of Political Science to OA, with all articles published under a CC BY license. In addition, back volumes dating from 1998 are freely available. Annual Reviews is in the middle of a pilot program for Subscribe to Open. The Annual Review of Cancer Biology and the Annual Review of Public Health were made OA as part of this program earlier in 2020.
According to the press release, “Subscribe to Open is a solution for sustainable open access publishing that provides an alternative to article processing charges (APCs), the mechanism used by most open access journals. It uses existing library relationships and subscription purchases to convert gated journals to open access. Institutions simply continue to subscribe—there are no additional processes—and as long as subscription revenues are maintained, the year’s volume is published open access and the back volumes are made freely available.”
