“We are excited about adopting a hybrid open access publishing model for the ASEV journals. This change demonstrates ASEV’s nimbleness in responding to the changing research funding and publication landscape. It is timely and will enhance the attractiveness of our journals, providing options for our authors that must comply with different funding requirements,” said Markus Keller, ASEV Science Editor, and Raquel Abad, ASEV Managing Editor.

The following are the changes with the new model:

If authors choose to publish their article open access, they will be charged an Article Processing Charge.

  • ASEV Members: $1,000 per article (at least one of the authors must be a member to qualify)
  • Non-Members: $2,000 per article

Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY) License

  • A CC BY license will be applied to all OA-published articles. This license allows readers of an article to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the original work, even commercially, as long as they credit the creator of the original work. Using this license for our OA articles will ensure compliance with Plan S, as required by cOAlition S.
