New OA journal of conference proceedings from IOP

New open access proceedings service supports earth and environmental science conferences, a press release from the Institute of Physics, November 22, 2007.  (Thanks to KnowledgeSpeak.)

Monday 19 November 2007 saw the launch of IOP Conference Proceedings: Earth and Environmental Science (EES) a fast, efficient and low-cost open access proceedings service dedicated to conferences specializing in the earth and environmental science disciplines.

Based on IOP Publishing’s highly successful open access proceedings in physics, EES allows conference organizers to create a comprehensive record of their event and make a valuable contribution to the open access literature that will be of long-lasting benefit to their research communities.

As part of the service’s launch, EES is waiving a total of US$5000 of publication fees for a number of conferences who expect to publish their proceedings during 2008....

We are delighted to announce that the first conference to qualify for this is the 14th International Symposium for the Advancement of Boundary Layer Remote Sensing (ISARS2008) which takes place on 23–25 June 2008, Risø National Laboratory, DTU, Roskilde, Denmark....
