Subject: IOP introduces open access publishing option on 23 journals

***A version of this message has been cross-posted***

Dear Librarians,

IOP Publishing (IOP) is pleased to announce that we are introducing
an open access publishing option on 23 of our subscription-based
journals, effective immediately. Authors will now be able to make the
final versions of their articles freely available upon publication.
This "hybrid open access model" was developed to support authors who
want to publish on an open access basis, or who are mandated to do so
by their funding bodies. Authors will be able to make their work open
to everyone in perpetuity upon payment of an article publication fee.

Steven Hall, Managing Director of IOP Publishing, said of the new
service, "IOP was a pioneer in open access publishing, launching the
New Journal of Physics in 1998 in partnership with the Deutsche
Physikalische Gesellschaft and is now publishing seven pure open
access journals.  It is a natural extension to introduce an open
access option on our traditional subscription journals. We want
authors to be able to publish in their journal of choice, regardless
of business model.  Gold open access can be a sustainable complement
or alternative to subscription publishing and we will work with
funding bodies which seek to disseminate their research in this way."

IOP Publishing will take revenue from article publication charges
fully into account when setting prices for our subscription journals,
to ensure that publication costs are not paid twice, through both
subscription and publication charges.  

The 23 IOP-owned titles which will now offer the hybrid open-access
option include the Journal of Physics series, Classical and Quantum
Gravity and Nanotechnology. We are currently in discussions with
our partners on the possibility of introducing the hybrid option on
co-published journals.

With sincere regards,
