SAS Open Journals launched !

Just on my way home now from an excellent launch event for SAS Open Journals , which can now be found at its permanent home. Particular thanks are due to Steve Whittle and Julian Harris, my colleagues who have helped see Amicus Curiae through its transition onto the SAS-OJ system, to be our first journal. I am also very grateful to Damien Short for his presentation on the questions that face the editor of a prospective new journal.
As it is Open Access Week next week, I shall be writing a report on the event, to be made available next week. The participants in the workshop broke into four groups to discuss issues of common concern, including staffing and workflow, marketing and publicity, business models and the transition from print to web. Lots of very interesting issues were raised, for which I’m very grateful to all those who were involved; and I hope that an account of those discussions will be useful for a wider audience.Watch this space !
