The British Journal of Pharmacology

Share this on social media:

The British Journal of Pharmacology (BJP) has started accepting open-access articles, subject to payment of a publication fee. The journal is moving to a mixed-revenue model of subscription charges and publication fees. For the remainder of 2006, the publication fee will be $2,500, €e1,850 or £1,250 + VAT (where applicable). Articles published with a publication fee will be clearly identified in the online and print editions of the journal with a 'BJP Open' logo (BJPOpen).

BJP is published by Nature Publishing Group (NPG) on behalf of the British Pharmacological Society (BPS). Editors will be blind to the author's choice. Authors paying the publication fee will be entitled to self-archive the published version immediately on publication, in the repositories of their choice, and in any format. Other articles will continue to be published under NPG's exclusive license-to-publish, where NPG's usual self-archiving policy will apply. Print subscription prices will be unaffected.

This change follows the introduction of 'Online Open' on the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, published by BPS and Blackwell Publishing.
