Kooperation zwischen Open-Access-Publisher Hindawi und dem konventionellen Verlag Sage Publishers

Der Open-Access-Verlag Hindawi und der kommerzielle Verlag Sage Publishers gingen laut einer Mitteilung beider Häuser eine Partnerschaft ein: Als gleichberechtigte Partner wollen ein Bundle neuer Open Access Journale etablieren, dabei übernimmt Sage die herausgeberische Verantwortung, Marketing und Werbung während Hindawi die technische und organisatorische Abwicklung von Einreichung der Manuskripte über die Begutachtung bis hin zur Publikation übernimmt. Diese Kooperation kann als Beleg für die Aufweichung der Grenzen zwischen Open-Access-Verlagen und konventionellen Toll-Access-Verlagen gelten.
