  • *20% year on year growth
  • *On average at least 10 new journals being added to the portfolioGrowth in OA journals is significant because it has become the more financially attractive way to launch journalsIts not easy to launch a new journal with library subscription budgets reducing, but OA makes it possibleInterestingly though for BMC, that whilst we are branching into new subject areas and launching new journals, many of our new titles are increasingly from journals, societies, wanting to transfer to the OA model.>>>>>not surprising that all of the growth in these areas leads to an increase in submissions….
  • *30% growth in submissions
  • Over 340 worldwide but only 2 in Africa….Stellenbosch and University of the Witwatersrand
