The Max Planck Society has established a new transformative open access agreement with the Microbiology Society (MBS) which is in effect from Janurary 1, 2022 to December 31, 2024 and covers open access publishing by Max Planck affiliated corresponding authors in all MBS Gold and Hybrid journals under a Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY). Under the agreement, the article processing charges will be covered centrally by the Max Planck Digital Library. The agreement also covers access to the entire archive of Society content, back to 1947. This open access agreement is part of the Max Planck Society’s strategy to enable a large-scale transition of today’s scholarly journals to open access.
