Acta Crystallographica E converts to OA

According to a post yesterday by Peter Murray-Rust, Acta Crystallographica Section E: Structure Reports Online has converted to OA. The journal is published by the International Union of Crystallography and is peer-reviewed, with monthly issues. Apparently the journal previously offered hybrid OA, as do several other IUCr journals. The publication fee is $150, as reported here; waivers are available for authors from developing countries, and discounts are available for authors with an institutional subscription to Acta Crystallographica C. Articles will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution License, and authors do not transfer copyright to the journal.

I haven't seen any statement from the journal or publisher about the conversion, but we'll add them here is they surface later.
