Royal Society and Open Access

The Royal Society of London is the world's oldest science publisher and now they are taking on open access. This new open access part of the Royal Society is going to be called Royal Society Open Science (RSOS.) The article goes on to describe the process of objective peer review, which the source will take advantage of. The Royal Society sees this as a chance to publisher research of any kind that has to do with science and math, even if it the research turned out negative results. The article does not say what the fee to publish in RSOS will be. This could be a really cool source for all sorts of librarians from academic to public.
