Wiley, publishers of more than 500 journals, is launching a number of open access journals throughout 2011.

Wiley & Sons will begin publishing Brain and Behavior, an open access journal, this spring. Brain and Behavior is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal, providing rapid publication of high-quality research across neurology, neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry. The open access format is intended to offer authors more choice, according to a Wiley press release.

“With the launch of Brain and Behavior, the Editorial Board and I, along with the support of many international societies, will offer the research community a high quality peer-reviewed journal that meets the needs of those authors who wish to publish their work in an open access environment. I am delighted to be working with Wiley to deliver this important new service,” according to editor-in-chief Andrei V. Alexandrov, professor of neurology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The open access journals will be published under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License, which permits use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited and is not used for commercial purposes. Authors will be paid a publication fee upon acceptance of their articles.

Wiley publishes more than 500 journals. Its open access titles are being launched in collaboration with international professional and scholarly societies.

The Directory of Open Access Journals currently lists 6,214 journals.
