Springer Open Choice uptake affects 2011 journal pricing

> Heidelberg / Dordrecht / New York / London, 18 June 2010

> 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 
Non-Commercial License.  These articles can be self-archived with 
immediate access.

> >
> > 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.'
