The Fully OA blog was born out of the OASPA Interest Group of Fully OA journal organizations. The purpose of the group is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas and, where appropriate, collaboration amongst publishers that only publish Open Access. The aim of the group is to provide unity, not by creating a single voice, but by bringing together a diversity of different voices and perspectives that share one commitment: full Open Access.
