Going Open Access -- Slowly but Surely

Blogger Bora Zivkovic is excited -- SAGE and Hindawi will be starting a site with a few open-access journals in December, he writes at Blog Around the Clock. SAGE isn't yet taking its established journal in that direction but is starting new ones online, which is understable, according to Zivkovic. "If brand new journals flop, it is not such a big deal. If old established journals go belly up in this experiment, that would be quite a disaster," he blogs. And he's hoping that they won't -- a main journal in his field of chronobiology, the Journal of Biological Rhythms, is published by SAGE.
