Marquette launches first OA journal

The first of seven OA journals from Marquette, the Journal of Communication Studies, has been released. (Thanks to Humanities Info.) Peter previously blogged Marquette's plans to do so.

Comment. It looks as though Marquette has backslid on its initial plans: in the announcement that Peter blogged, the publisher named 8 journals, including the Russian Journal of Communication. That journal has in fact been released -- but only abstracts are available from Marquette, which now mentions publishing 7 free journals rather than 8.
