AGU makes journal content more accessible

American Geophysical Union (AGU) has taken two major steps forward in making Earth and space science research more accessible to scientists and the public:
  • Beginning 1 May 2014, access to all AGU journal content and Eos from 1997 to content published 24 months ago will be made freely available. This change will apply to all articles and supplementary materials from journals that are not already open access, and it currently represents more than 80,000 articles and issues of Eos. Additional content will continue to become open every month, on a 24-month rolling cycle.
  • AGU has joined the innovative Access to Research initiative through its publishing partner, Wiley. This program provides patrons of U.K. public libraries instant online access to journal content from 1997 to the present at the library.
In addition to these new initiatives, AGU offers Green Open Access after six months that allows the author's copy to be placed in a repository, and we now have three fully open access journals - JAMES, Earth's Future, and the recently announced Earth and Space Science, which will publish its first articles later this year.
Please see further details in the press release.
