We are pleased to announce a newly launched Hybrid Publishing Model designed for journals that wish to connect subscriptions with Open Access format. Hybrid gives the power of choice and flexibility to authors and journals alike. Authors can elect to provide their work in either open or closed format, whereas journals can manage their revenues from sources such as libraries and full-text distributors at the same time. The model also simplifies the organization of subscription earnings and Article Processing Charges, making the whole process and easy to manage.
Hybrid also provides innovative solutions, such as pay-per-view, advertising space, and donate buttons which allow journals to continue their traditional model of publication and still remain attractive for authors interested in Open Access.
