LIS publisher Emerald has introduced a 24-month embargo on authors
whose institutions have open access mandates, according to Richard
Poynder on Open and Shut:
This is a significant backtrack from what was a really good open
access archiving policy.
As of today, there are 146 titles listed under Library and Information
Studies in the Directory of Open Access Journals, and most say
Publication Fee - No:
Librarians, Emerald current and potential editors, authors, and
reviewers, perhaps it is time to ditch this "it's about the profit"
publisher in favour of journals that prioritize sharing of our
knowledge? If none of the current DOAJ titles fit your scholarly niche
- why not start your own?
