Open Access Journals: Revenue Beyond Author Charges

:: David Stern, Director of Science Libraries and Information Services, Kline Science Library, Yale, has created a web page that provides an outline of one version of a proposed open access model. The site is called Open Access Journals: revenue beyond author charges. The approach "is based upon guaranteed revenue generated through differential pricing, with direct and indirect charges to vested institutions." From the web site:

This page will attempt to outline the current pricing models that are being tested for supporting Open Access to electronic journals. My definition of open access is: freely available immediate access to published peer reviewed research articles.
David welcomes comments on his proposal, which can be added from the site.

:: Brian Simboli, Lehigh U, has created the "Non-Exhaustive List of Resources about Open Access Publishing".
