Emerald Publishing Launches Green Open Access for LIS Journals

The UK publisher Emerald Group Publishing announced last week that it is launching an open access "zero embargo" trial for articles submitted to its Library and Information Science and selected Information and Knowledge Management journals:
"Emerald's Green OA route offers all Emerald authors of journal articles the option to make their research openly available, free from payment and time restrictions. Once an article has been published by Emerald, an author may voluntarily post their own version of the article that was submitted to the journal (pre-print) or the version of the article that has been accepted for publication (post-print) onto their own personal website or into their own institutional repository with no payment or embargo period (with the exception of funded research where Emerald’s standard 24 month embargo period applies to mandated articles)."
The journals in the trial include:
  • Collection Building
  • Interlending & Document Supply
  • Library Hi Tech
  • Library Hi Tech News
  • Library Management
  • Library Review
  • New Library World
  • OCLC Systems & Services: International digital library perspectives
  • Performance Measurement and Metrics
  • Program
  • Reference Reviews
  • Reference Services Review
  • The Bottom Line
  • Aslib Journal of Information Management
  • The Electronic Library
  • Information and Computer Security
  • Information Technology & People
  • Internet Research
  • Journal of Documentation
  • Journal of Information, Communication and Ethics in Society
  • Online Information Review
