Springer Open Choice uptake affects 2011 journal pricing

> Springer has analyzed the uptake of its open access option Open
Choice for articles published in 2009 and is pleased to share its
impact on 2011 pricing.>
> Springer Open Choice allows authors to publish their article
with open access in exchange for payment of a fee, for the
majority of its journals. The articles are then immediately
freely available and the copyright remains with the author, and
articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution

> > A detailed analysis of the Open Choice articles published in
2009 showed that over 30 journals published a significant share
of paid open access articles in 2009. This will be reflected in
these journals' 2011 subscription prices.
> Wim van der Stelt, EVP Business Development at Springer, says:
'We have always said that we would monitor the uptake of the Open
Choice offering closely. In 2010, we already adjusted
subscription prices for a small group of journals and the group
of journals with a significant number of paid Open Choice
articles has grown further. We are therefore pleased to reflect
this in the 2011 pricing. We believe that this emphasizes the
constructive attitude of Springer towards open access, which we
have shown previously by pioneering Open Choice in 2004 and
acquiring BioMed Central in 2008.'
