Hindawi Publishing Corporation launches Open Access Institutional Membership
.: George forwarded the following press release:
The Hindawi Publishing Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of its Open Access Institutional Membership program. The Institutional Membership was created in order to give libraries and other institutional sponsors the opportunity to encourage Open Access publishing within their organization.
Researchers from Member Institutes will be able to publish in any of our Open Access journals without incurring an article processing charge (usually around €600 per article). A membership for the year 2006 will cost a flat-rate of €2000 per institute, and it will apply to all of our existing Open Access journals as well as any Open Access journals that Hindawi launches during 2006 (around 20 new OA titles are expected in 2006). As an added bonus, all members who sign up during 2005 will automatically be given a free membership for the remainder of this year.
Hindawi currently publishes 10 Open Access journals in a number of fields including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedicine, applied mathematics and materials science. All articles published in our Open Access journals are released using a Creative Commons Attribution License and are freely available at www.hindawi.com.
