WorldSciNet OPEN ACCESS
"World Scientific has announced that authors can now choose to have their journal articles made available with full open access. For this purpose, authors will be charged a basic article processing fee. Similar to the traditional publishing model, articles from authors opting for open access will be peer-reviewed, undergo the same quality production process and made available in both print and electronic formats. They will be similarly included in appropriate Abstract and Indexing Services and all the articles will be registered in CrossRef. When authors choose WorldSciNet OPEN ACCESS, they will retain the copyright to (not of) the article but will be required to sign the WorldSciNet Open Access License to Publish. Each WorldSciNet Open Access article will be clearly identified with an 'Open Access' icon in both the e-version and the print format"
