Emerald announces first open access articles through special partnership with IFLA
"Emerald Group Publishing Limited has unveiled the first articles in open access as part of its 'special partnership' with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA). Available from November 1, 2010, the fourteen articles are published in four different Emerald journals: Interlending & Document Supply, Library Hi Tech News, Performance Measurement and Metrics, and Program. Under this agreement, papers that have their origins in an IFLA conference or project, have the opportunity to be published in one of Emerald's LIS journals and become open access nine months after publication. This special partnership takes advantage of the Emerald platform to increase the discoverability of research presented at IFLA events"
