CMM re the NHMRC’s rules in force from today:

“…paying to publish an article in an otherwise subscription journal is not acceptable, unless such hybrid publications are part of agreement between a group of research institutions and a publisher.”

Congratulations to CAUL for locking in “hybrid” publishing for several more years, great job team. 🙄


Genuine congrats to NHMRC on the other hand, for having nothing to do with publishers wanting to have it both ways. Pity they let themselves be convinced that RAP agreements should be allowed to override their otherwise no-nonsense policy.
