First OA journal on OA

Open Access Research is a new peer-reviewed OA journal sponsored by the Georgia State University Library.  It's the first peer-reviewed journal devoted to OA itself.  (Disclosure:  I'm on the editorial board.)  From the call for papers:

Open Access Research (OAR), is a peer- reviewed, open-access journal that will enable greater interaction and facilitate a deeper conversation about open access, including topics such as:

  • open access journals
  • institutional support for open access
  • open access publishing services and software
  • open access repositories (both institutional and subject-based)
  • electronic theses and dissertations
  • the impact of open access on scholarly research and communications.

If you are engaged in research relating to open access, or if you have an article in mind, please contact us. OAR's first issue will be in August, 2007 and will subsequently be published three times a year....

Editors-in-Chief: John Russell (University of Oregon), Dorothea Salo (George Mason University), William Walsh (Georgia State University), Elizabeth Winter (Georgia Institute of Technology)....
