New OA Journal Options From OUP and Frontiers

Oxford University Press (OUP) rolled out the first two titles in its new flagship OA journal series, Oxford Open. They are Oxford Open Immunology (“research and reviews across all aspects of the immune system in health and disease”) and Oxford Open Materials Science (“Covering the entire breadth of materials science, the journal will bring together research from functional materials and biomaterials, to quantum materials and nanomaterials, encompassing theoretical and computational modelling, characteristic studies, synthesis, design, and application.”). Both journals are now open for submissions, with publication planned for later this year.

The International Journal of Public Health will transition to gold OA in January 2021. “The journal, which celebrates its 100th anniversary soon, will also be transferring from its current publisher Springer Nature to Frontiers, a leading Gold Open Access publisher offering tailored services and a highly technologically advanced platform.”

The Swiss School of Public health (SSPH+) owns the journal, and SSPH+ director and journal co-editor-in-chief, Nino Künzli, says, “I’m very much looking forward to opening the second century of our journal with Open Access—Life is changing!”

Frontiers states, “This is the first society title to transfer to Frontiers as part of Frontiers’ Publishing Partnerships program, and we look forward to collaborating with the SSPH+ on the International Journal of Public Health.”

For more information, read the OUP press release and the Frontiers blog post.
