Another reverse-embargo journal from LMS

The London Mathematical Society has launched the Journal of Topology, published by Oxford University Press.  Like the three other Oxford-published LMS journals, this one is not OA, but it uses the rare and interesting access policy that could be called the reverse-embargo model:  users worldwide have free online access for the first year after publication, whereupon the articles move behind a pay wall. 

For details on the Journal of Topology, see the November 1 announcement.
