When I joined Annual Reviews 5 years ago as a PLOS alum, I was hopeful (but not certain) that we could create a business model to convert our subscription journals, which publish expert reviews in the life, biomedical, physical, and social sciences, to open access. You can chart our progress towards open on this blog.
Today, that model, called Subscribe to Open, is a reality. We've piloted it on eight of our journals and there's even a Community of Practice for wider publisher adoption. We want to recognize this milestone by fully participating in Open Access Week and are hosting the following event which we invite you to join.

The participants are:
Moderated by: Richard Gallagher, President and Editor-In-Chief, Annual Reviews.
We look forward to welcoming you on October 27 2021. Sign up today.
