The EMBO Journal and EMBO reports, which are published by Nature Publishing Group, will accept open-access articles as of January 2007, subject to payment of a publication fee. The open-access option will be available to all authors submitting original research on or after 1 January 2007. The publication fee will be 2,000 plus VAT (where applicable). Articles published with a publication fee will be clearly identified in the online and print editions of the journal with an open-access icon. Print subscription prices will not be affected but site licence prices will be adjusted in line with the amount of content published annually.

Authors paying the publication fee will be entitled to self-archive the published version immediately on publication in a repository of their choice, and in any format. Content that an author has decided to make freely available online will be licensed under the Creative Commons Deed 2.5. The author thereby permits dissemination and re-use of the article, enabling the sharing and re-use of scientific material. This does not, however, permit commercial exploitation or the creation of derivative works without specific permission.
