UC Merced faculty will be interested in the UC/Springer Open Access Journal Publishing Pilot announced in January 2009. This ground-breaking arrangement with Springer provides faculty with the opportunity to publish in selected Springer journals covered by the pilot. Final versions of the articles published during the two-year pilot will be available in the eScholarship Repository beginning in Fall 2009. For more information, faculty should visit the Reshaping Scholarly Communication site at http://osc.universityofcalifornia.edu/alternatives/springer_faq.html. This site includes an FAQ, a link to the Springer journals covered by the pilot, as well as a short list of titles excluded from the program.
