BMJ’s hybrid model of open access

Kamran Abbasi, A hybrid for open access, BMJ, October 9, 2004. BMJ unterscheidet nun zwischen Research Articles (ganz frei) und Value Added Content (news, ads, reviews: erste Woche frei, dann erst wieder nach einem Jahr). All this leads us to what we have begun calling the ‚hybrid model‘ of scientific publishing, where authors might pay for peer review and publication of original research while libraries– or readers– pay for the value added content.
