Preview of new hybrid journal

In May, Future-Drugs will launch Therapy, a new peer-reviewed journal using the Walker-Prosser method of supporting OA. That is, authors will have the option to pay a processing fee and have OA to their articles or to pay no fee and have conventional toll access to their articles. Future-Drugs is a commercial publisher whose seven other journals are entirely toll-access. Hence, this is another example of a commercial publisher experimenting with OA.
