When it rains, it pours. More availability comes our way:

"Wiley announces the launch of Wiley Open Access, a new publishing program of open access journals.  The first journals will launch shortly, publishing primary, peer-reviewed research in a range of broad-based subject disciplines in the life and biomedical sciences, including neuroscience, microbiology, ecology and evolution.


Wiley Open Access will provide authors wishing to publish their research outcomes in an open access journal with a range of new high quality publications which meet the requirements of funding organizations and institutions where these apply.


"The development of Wiley Open Access is an example of our commitment to offer authors the widest possible choice in publishing with Wiley", said Steve Miron, Senior Vice President, Wiley-Blackwell.  He added, "Wiley has a strong history of innovation in journal publishing and we see this as a natural extension of our service to our learned society partners, authors, and the scholarly community in its broadest sense".
