Portland Press adopts CC-BY

Share this on social media:

Portland Press Limited, the publishing subsidiary of the Biochemical Society, says that it will invite authors to use the CC-BY (Creative Commons Attribution) licence for papers published in its two gold open-access (OA) journals ASN NEURO and Bioscience Reports.

The change in licensing arrangements also applies to papers published under the Opt2Pay (gold OA) option in Portland Press’s  hybrid journals, which include the Biochemical Journal, Biochemical Society Transactions and Clinical Science.

Caroline Black, MD Portland Press, said 'As a publisher owned by a learned society we are committed to working with the scientific community to ensure the widest possible access to research. We support funded gold open access as part of a package of measures to extend access to and dissemination of research.'
