IOP Publishing Rolls Out New OA Titles
IOP Publishing is unveiling three fully OA journals in the Environmental Research series. The company states the following:
Environmental Research: Health (ERH) and Environmental Research: Climate (ERCL) will both open submissions from [Oct. 7]. The third new journal, Environmental Research: Ecology (ERE) will open for submissions later in 2021.
The three new journals reflect the surge in published research that covers one of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) such as clean water and sanitation, sustainable cities and communities and climate action. The growth in this scientific field is expected to accelerate further in the coming years.
The new journals offer a suite of interdisciplinary OA publishing options with rigorous peer review standards based on editorial excellence and a commitment to data transparency. Like the first and most recently launched journal of the series, Environmental Research: Infrastructure and Sustainability, research published in the three new titles will be universally accessible, ensuring maximum visibility and reach. …
[IOP Publishing] will waive all OA article publication charges for articles that are submitted to the three new launches before 2024. After the initial waiver period for all, authors from low- and middle-income countries who publish in [IOP Publishing’s] new journals don’t have to pay any article processing costs.
