EDP Sciences recently announced that its complete mathematics journal portfolio of six subscription titles—including the flagship journal "ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical analysis"— transitioned to Open Access (OA) under the innovative Subscribe-to-Open (S2O) model. In partnership with Knowledge Unlatched (KU), EDP Sciences will be asking libraries and institutions currently subscribing to any of the six journals to renew for 2021 and beyond on a S2O basis, thus contributing to maintaining these journals Open Access in years to come.
With this flip, EDP Sciences is fulfilling part of its mission to make the mathematics content it publishes freely available and as widespread as possible. All newly accepted articles in the six journals are now published in Open Access with a CC-BY licence without article processing charges (APCs).
EDP Sciences will receive support from KU in introducing the S2O model to libraries, working with the Subscription Division of EBSCO Information Services for related transactions. By building on current subscription processes, the S2O model reaffirms librarians’ roles as decision-makers and curators who continue to influence and shape the landscape of OA journal publishing.Click here to read the original press release.
