New Gold Open Access Option for AAS Journals
AAS members who publish in and referee for AAS Journals received an email message last week introducing a new payment option for authors called Gold Open Access. In response to author requests and funding agency requirements, this option is now available and can be selected at manuscript submission.
AAS Journals are considered Green Open Access because they are permanently freely available after 12 months. A Gold Open Access article is immediately available to anyone on the internet without a subscription. The AAS still holds copyright for Gold Open Access articles but publishes them under a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license. For more information on this new payment option and Gold Open Access author rates, please visit the AAS Journals webpage.
