Three journals from Springer's Chinese Library of Science (CLoS) will be published as open access journals on SpringerOpen. This year Chinese Science Bulletin and Science China Life Sciences, co-published with Science China Press (SCP), and Photonic Sensor, co-published with the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, will be available in the SpringerOpen portfolio. These peer-reviewed academic journals, part of more than 90 journals in the CLoS collection, will immediately be available to any internet user.
