The Royal Society have announced a change in the pricing structure for its author-pays, open access model, known as EXiS Open Choice.
Responding to author feedback, EXiS fees will now be based on a per-article rate, rather than a per-page rate.
There are now two article rates:
Full research articles and reviews are priced at £2,600 ($4,420).
Shorter format articles are priced at the lower rate of £1,500 ($2,550).
Articles published under this model are automatically deposited in PubMed Central (and mirrored to UKPMC) and made available at the time of publication. These articles are licenced using the Creative Commons Attribution, Noncommercial License, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited and this use is for non-commercial purposes.
