APS, Wiley Accepting Submissions for New Open Access Options

Plot image from Physical Review LettersThe American Physical Society now offers the choice to publish Open Access (OA) articles in Physical Review and Physical Review Letters. Published OA articles will appear alongside other articles in these journals, which are available from our E-journals page. The Fee structure for 2011 is:



Physical Review


Physical Review Letters


Additionally, Wiley will be accepting submissions for its new crop of OA journals to be published this year. Among these is Ecology and Evolution, and Wiley is now accepting contributions for work in all areas of environmental science. For more information, visit Wiley’s Open Access site.

750% Price Increase Leads to Suspension of Online Access to a Number of Wiley Journals

Wiley-Blackwell logoFor the past 4 years, The Boulder Labs Library has participated in a consortium purchase of Wiley online journals via The National Research Libraries Association (NRLA) and the NOAA Central Library that provided access to over 200 Wiley titles from 1997 to present with an additional 200 titles accessible from 1997 - 2004.  The agreement for 2011 was not renewed because during renegotiation of the contract, Wiley raised NOAA’s costs by almost 750%, a price that NOAA’s budget could not sustain.  Wiley is in the process of shutting off access to the following online titles.  If you have any questions or concerns about this please contact Dottie Anderson, x5550,

AAAS offers Mobile-Friendly Sites

Science magazine logoAAAS now offers access to Science optimized for mobile devices. By downloading the Science mobile app, researchers have access to tables of content, article abstracts, and some full-text content such as editorials and ScienceNow, the daily news service. Because journal subscriptions are based on IP address recognition, the app for mobile devices cannot provide the same full-text coverage available to you from your Boulder Labs desktop. The app does, however, allow for full-text content to be downloaded from your desktop to a mobile device.
