* Announcement (cross-posted) *

I just mailed the December issue of the SPARC Open Access Newsletter.  This
issue takes a close look at OA journals published by scholarly societies.
 Excerpt:  "How many scholarly societies publish OA journals, and how many
OA journals do they publish?  Four years ago (November 2007), Caroline
Sutton and I released the first edition of our inventory answering those
questions, and today we release the second edition.  Cutting to the chase:
 Our 2007 list turned up 425 societies publishing 450 full or non-hybrid OA
journals.  Our 2011 list shows 530 societies publishing 616 full OA

The look-back sections reprint short excerpts from SOAN five and ten years
ago this quarter.
