The Nature Publishing Group’s journal Nature Communications will move to gold open access. The journal was launched as a multidisciplinary journal in 2010. It will only accept open access research submissions from 20th October 2014.
A report (pdf) by the Research Information Network shows “that there is a significant benefit for article views and downloads, as well as a small but significant citation benefit to publishing open access in Nature Communications”.
