New journal on biodiversity

We would like to bring to your attention the launch of a new international peer-reviewed journal called International Journal of Biodiversity and Conservation.

The journal will be launched in May 2009 and the publisher is Academic Journals; a publisher whose mission is to provides free access to research information to the international community without financial, legal or technical barriers. This publisher works with the open access model, and strongly supports the Open Access initiative. Abstracts and full texts (usually in PDF format) of all articles published by Academic Journals are freely accessible to everyone immediately after publication.

Instructions for authors: click here.

You will see that to submit a paper to this journal there is a handling fee of $550.00. It is a very small amount compared to other STM publishers that request a fee of $3000 – $5000 to make a research paper “open access”
