Palgrave Macmillan Announces Open Access Option For Monographs And Palgrave Pivot Publications

LONDON and NEW YORK, January 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

From today, Palgrave Macmillan will offer authors and their funders the option to publish open access (OA) research across all publication formats.  Palgrave Macmillan journal articles, monographs and Palgrave Pivot publications can now be made available with immediate open access upon publication via Palgrave Open.

Palgrave Open will publish all OA content under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) License to support maximum dissemination and use. Preferred by many research funding bodies, this license allows readers to alter, transform, or build upon the article and then distribute the resulting work as long as the original work is correctly cited. The CC BY license complies with a range of open access policies and allows authors to meet the public access requirements of many major funding bodies and institutions worldwide. Palgrave Macmillan is the only commercial publisher to offer this license across 3 publication outputs: journal articles, mid-form (Palgrave Pivot) and long-form (monograph) research. Alternative Creative Commons licenses are available to authors on request.  

Content published via Palgrave Open will be subject to the same professional and rigorous peer-review process as all other Palgrave Macmillan publications. The opportunity to publish open access will be available to all authors once their research has been approved for publication. Authors can opt to pay a publication charge in order for their research to be made freely available.

Palgrave Open content will be freely available and searchable via Palgrave Macmillan's journals website or award-winning ebook platform, Palgrave Connect.

Speaking about the project, Sam Burridge, Managing Director, Palgrave Macmillan, comments, "Palgrave Open is a timely and exciting initiative for the Humanities and Social Sciences, a community that has not hitherto found itself significantly involved with open access models. Palgrave Macmillan is taking the lead in responding to the community's request for an alternative publishing model to sit alongside traditional methods. It is important that we are at the forefront of exploring sustainable publishing solutions for our authors and the academic community."

Palgrave Macmillan plan to expand this OA offering in 2013 with the launch of a fully open access journal, accepting articles from across the Humanities and Social Sciences.
