Open Access

Thanks to the support of our subscribers, Pluto Journals has successfully reached the goal to flip our complete journal portfolio of 21 titles to Open Access from 2021 onwards. 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. We asked those libraries and institutions currently subscribing to any of the journals to renew for 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. 

The Founder and Managing Director of Pluto Journals, Roger van Zwanenberg, has written a letter to colleagues in the social sciences explaining our move to Open Access. In his letter he addresses why we now moved to Open Access and its importance for the future of us as a publisher.
