Remarkable ongoing chaos at OUPFebruary 21st, 2017 | Posted by in Paywall Watch | Wrongly selling OA articles
Just a quick post tonight. Yet another paywalled open access article. It’s becoming a daily occurrence!
The total chaos that has been ongoing at Oxford University Press journals over the pass month is still ongoing would you believe it?

Having thoroughly shamed Elsevier for paywalling and selling paid-for open access articles it would only be fair to pour scorn on OUP for doing the same thing too at the journal Systematic Biology. The article ‘Bayesian Total-Evidence Dating Reveals the Recent Crown Radiation of Penguins‘ first published on 1st August 2016, has a landing page which clearly states it is “an Open Access article”, yet below this it also says “You do not currently have access to this article” and further below that you can pay $42 to be granted 24 hours access to this article. Like I said before, hybridOA at many publishers is seriously broken!
