'Elsevier Flips 160 Journals to Open Access' by Jamie Durrani

Jamie Durrani, science correspondent for Chemistry World, reports the following:

Commercial publishing giant Elsevier is converting 160 subscription-based journals to fully open access models. The move comes as the European open access initiative Plan S enters a crucial new stage.

The Coalition S movement behind Plan S noted that it has registered 160 Elsevier publications as ‘transformative journals.’ … Transformative journals must increase the proportion of their research articles that are immediately free to read by at least 5% per year. They must also commit to remove subscription fees as soon as 75% of their papers are published open access. …

Elsevier states that of its 2600 journals, more than 500 are already open access.
