Point of information: JoV goes CC-By in Jan 2016
>While there has always been free access to Journal of Vision and TVST (Translational Vision Science & Technology, another ARVO journal), the copyright for the articles is held by ARVO. However, effective January 1, 2016, the ARVO family of journals (IOVS, JOV, and TVST) is going open access. All content published prior to January 1, 2016, will still be copyrighted to ARVO but will be freely accessible; however, all articles published on or after January 1, 2016, will be open access based on a Creative Commons license (discussed below).
In terms of our discussion, does this change anything? I remain enthusiastic about the PeerJ platform and the "journal within a journal" structure... but this change also makes the need for a new vision journal less pressing, in my opinion. Thoughts?
