"The Company of Biologists’ three hybrid journals – Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology – have chosen the ‘transformative’ route towards Open Access.

As the first not-for-profit publisher to commit to the Transformative Journal approach, we are excited about this next step in our Open Access journey.

Our three journals are the very first to be listed by Coalition S as being Plan S compliant Transformative Journals.

We have offered Open Access publishing options since 2004 and two of our five journals are already fully Open Access. We believe that Open Access is the direction of travel and it is clear that, as well as reader benefits, Open Access provides our authors with a wider readership and higher usage for their articles.

The Transformative Journal strategy signals more clearly our commitment to move towards full Open Access, while allowing us to provide publishing options that support all our authors as we approach this change in the publishing landscape...."
