Maney Publishing Group develops Open Access option
Maney Publishing have developed an author-pays option for around 40 of their journals, including 15 titles in the health sciences with the intention to expand this to humanities journals in the future.
In return for paying a fee of US$2,000/£1,250 Maney will deposit the final version of the article directly to PMC (and other repositories as nominated by the author).
Articles published under the MORE OpenChoice option will be licenced using the Creative Commons, Attribution, non-commerical licence. Further details are available on the Maney web site.
This OpenChoice option meets the requirements of the Wellcome Trust and the other UKPMC Funders
