In the Elsevier Open Publication Program Newsletter


the “Authors journey” presentations of the form for authors in Programme A and B were updated.

At the request of the NSA, Elsevier has partially modified the information that is displayed on the form on pages 5 and 6 with the option ‘Gold Open Access’. Currently, this information contains a link “the rules of the Open Access pilot program in Poland” to our guide about the program.

We have also prepared brief information for authors filling in the form:


Furthermore, the NSA informs that, due to the still low utilisation of the programme (160 articles until November 28 2019), it was agreed with Elsevier to include in the programme approximately 200 articles that were sent to the publisher after May 31, 2019, and published in the subscription model before the start of the programme on September 2. On November 28, 2019, authors of these articles should receive an email from ICM with a proposal for model change and a unique link prepared by Elsevier that allows them to re-fill in the form and select the publication open under Program A.
