Publishing guide now covers OA journals

The second edition of Abby Day's book, How to Get Research Published in Journals (Gower, February 2008) now includes advice on publishing in OA journals.  (Thanks to Annette Hexelschneider.)


  • I haven't seen what she says about OA journals but look forward to finding out. 
  • I'd like to see publishing guides explain that you can provide OA to your own peer-reviewed articles by (1) publishing them in OA journals or (2) by publishing them in conventional TA journals and depositing the peer-reviewed manuscripts an OA repository.  (I'm not saying that Day doesn't say this herself; I just don't know.)
