Oxford Journals takes bold step towards free access to research

Oxford Journals, a Division of Oxford University Press (OUP), announced today that its flagship journal Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) is to move to a full 'Open Access' (OA) publishing model from January 2005.

To fulfil our role as a University Press we felt a responsibility to the scholarly communities we represent to explore it as a viable publishing model," explained Martin Richardson, Managing Director of Oxford Journals. "Our year-long experiments with a small part of NAR have allowed us to consult authors, readers, and librarians on their views and also to monitor results.

The OA model being adopted for NAR has been designed to address various concerns raised in the OA debate thus far, as well as to safeguard the quality and financial viability of the journal.
