Thursday, February 13, 2014

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), publishers of the journal Science and related journals, have announced their intent to create a new online-only Open Access journal called Science Advances.  According to Marcia McNutt, editor-in-chief of Science, the purpose of the new journal is "to encourage transformative research and attract a wide readership."

The peer-reviewed journal is expected to be available starting in 2015.   In order to cover the publication costs of the journal, authors will pay an article processing charge for each article that is accepted.
