“Controversial open access plan stalled”

From TheScientist.com, “Forced charges for open access?”

. . . the APA [American Psychological Association] announced this week that it will charge authors’ institutions a $2500 fee for accepted manuscripts to be deposited in PubMed Central 12 months after publication.

. . .

This is basically as bad as it gets when it comes to publishers’ open access policy, Peter Suber, open access advocate, wrote on his blog yesterday. He told The Chronicle of Higher Education that the fee is a waste of money and submission to PubMed Central can easily be done by a machine.
