Established journal with IF of 5.14: Evolutionary Applications to publish under open access model
From February 2012 Evolutionary Applications joins the Wiley Open Access publishing program of fully open access journals published by Wiley. All newly published articles in the journal will be open access: free to view, download and share for non-commercial use.
Since its launch in 2008, Evolutionary Applications has attracted very high quality submissions and has attained an Impact Factor of 5.145 as well as winning the 2009 ALPSP award for the best new journal.
As the journal strives to remain current and relevant to the scientific community at large the Journal’s Editorial team recognize the importance of maximizing the visibility and accessibility of the research published in Evolutionary Applications both to increase its impact and to comply with funder mandates. To help achieve these goals, the publishing team at Wiley along with the support of the Editorial team, have decided to convert Evolutionary Applications to an author-pays open access model.
Liz Ferguson, Publisher of Evolutionary Applications at Wiley-Blackwell comments: “This is the first journal that Wiley has converted to publish under an open access model. Evolutionary Applications is a great fit with our new Wiley Open Access publishing program. Our substantial presence in this area and our growing experience of open access makes us confident that the journal will continue to go from strength to strength and appeal to both authors and readers under an open access model.”
Evolutionary Applications continues to publish under the direction of Louis Bernatchez, Editor-in-Chief, and Michelle Tseng, Founding and Managing Editor.
Evolutionary Applications will publish all articles under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License, which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited and is not used for commercial purposes. A publication fee will be payable by authors or their funder on acceptance of their articles.
