Palgrave Macmillan announce launch of new open access journal

Following quickly on from the last blog post regarding the launch of Royal Society Open Science we are delighted to announce the launch of another high quality open access journal but this time serving the humanities, social sciences and business.

Palgrave Macmillan (sister company to Nature Publishing Group) has just announced the launch of Palgrave Communications, a high quality open access online-only, multidisciplinary journal which will publish original research in all HSS related disciplines. The journal offers immediate, free online dissemination via a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license, and is committed to speedy acceptance and review of high quality original research.

Palgrave Communications will offer features such as Altmetrics, enhanced layout and navigation and will include the incorporation of figures, tables, video, multimedia and supplementary information. There will also be no restriction on word limits so all articles that conform to the required editorial standards of the journal will be published regardless of length.

The call for submissions has begun and the journal will publish its first articles later in 2014. If you are interested in publishing with this journal contact the Library at open-access-support@st-andrews.ac.uk we will give you details of the available open access funding options.
