Subscribe to Open (S2O)

Open access has many variants in the world of scholarly publishing. Our variant is called Subscribe to Open or S2O for short. S2O is presupposed on the willingness of the libraries that once subscribed to one or all of PJ Journals for their own library users. Under S2O, the previously subscribing libraries agree to continue paying a subscription-equivalent fee, but in an agreement with PJ, that their journals are made open access for scholars and others to use without payment. As a result of S2O, Pluto Journals usage took off, increasing six times over, on average, in the first few months of Open Access.

Our Thanks to Libraries Around the World

Thanks to the support of our subscribers, Pluto Journals successfully reached the goal of flipping its complete journal portfolio of 21 titles to Open Access in January 2021. The project “Pluto Open Journals” was realised in partnership with Knowledge Unlatched, and supported by the conceivers of the ground-breaking Subscribe-to-Open (S2O) model Libraria, a group of anthropologists and other social scientists committed to Open Access. Pluto Journals asked libraries and institutions previously subscribing to any of the journals to renew, from January 2021, on a S2O basis, thus contributing to making these journals completely free to readers and authors all over the world. Below, you can find details of the back issue availability dates for select journals where the whole back catalogue is not  available Open Access.
