From January 1st 2014 the STM publisher Elsevier has moved seven of its established journal titles to the gold Open Access (OA) publishing model. The titles are:
- Physics Letters B
- Nuclear Physics B
- Stem Cell Research
- The International Journal of Infectious Diseases
- Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
- EJC Supplements
Physics Letters B and Nuclear Physics B have been moved to an OA model as part of the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3) initiative.
All seven journals will still be subject to the same editorial standards as OA journals as they were when they were subscription-based journals.
Cardiff University staff and students can access articles from these journals (both pre and post January 2014) through LibrarySearch.
