IGI Global Makes 30 Journals Open Access
IGI Global has converted 30 of its journals to full gold OA. The publisher states, “This will enable authors to publish their work under a CC BY license (where the authors maintain the copyright and others can distribute, adapt, and build upon the work without limitations), as well as freely provide timely, peer-reviewed research that spans across 11 core subject areas, including business and management, computer science and IT, education, social sciences, and more.” Each of the gold OA journals will enter major OA repositories, such as DOAJ, to increase discoverability. All of IGI Global’s content is currently available via its InfoSci-Open platform.
“Now, more than ever, there is a need for the timeliest and highest quality research, and IGI Global has recently made the decision to begin to convert our journals into OA with the ultimate goal of transitioning our full journal collection to OA,” says Mehdi Khosrow-Pour, IGI Global’s founder and CEO.
