RSS to move publishers from 2023

From 1 January 2023, the RSS Journals (Series A, Series B, Series C) and Significance magazine will be produced by a new publisher, Oxford University Press (OUP).

The landscape of academic publishing is changing rapidly, and the move to open access is presenting challenges to learned Societies all over the world. On reaching the end of our current contract with Wiley, we wanted to explore what other publishers could offer in order to secure the best future for JRSSA, JRSSB,  JRSSC and Significance. In OUP, we saw a publisher with a clear strategy for providing sustainability and growth for our publications while maintaining their high quality and reputation. In addition, an important review of the journals is planned for 2022-23 which OUP has indicated it will help facilitate.

Despite these changes, the RSS does not anticipate any interruption to its services to members and subscribers of the Journals and very much expect it to be ‘business as usual’ during 2022 while the groundwork is being done for a smooth transition from 1 January 2023. 

We have compiled a page of FAQs for further information about the move, with a contact for anyone who has further queries.
