Five New Open Access Economics Journals
Springer and IZA launch five new open access economics journals in the labor economics area. For the moment, at least, the journals are free to publish in too. Hopefully, these won't go the way of the BE Press journals which started out as open access journals and are now difficult to access paywalled journals. Given that they are published by Springer, I don't think so. The worst that is likely to happen is that authors will have to pay to publish in them in the future and/or the journals will close some day but still be hosted on Springer's platform.
