New OA journal of polymer science and engineering

e-Polymers is a new peer-reviewed OA journal from the European Polymer Federation.  (Thanks to Jay Bhatt.)  From the about page:

...e-Polymers is the answer to the strange situation that many institutions cannot afford to subscribe to journals which - at the same time - they strongly support by submission of high-quality papers, refereeing etc.

However, the access page suggests a future qualification:

In the moment, access to e-Polymers is free for everybody and it will stay free for each library as well as for all members of the Participating organisations.

More detailed information can be found here in the near future.
