To the Editors, Diversity and Distributions, and Wiley Publishers:

To the Editors, Diversity and Distributions, and Wiley Publishers:

We write to you as a large group of scholars, researchers, educators, and students, from many institutions, who work in the areas of ecology, conservation, and biogeography. We, as a group, are extremely concerned with maintaining an active and fair system of scholarly communications in our field. We have collectively published dozens of papers in Diversity and Distributions, with hundreds or thousands of citations, and as such we marshal some degree of wisdom and experience in this arena. With this experience in hand, we write to urge you to reconsider your course of action with regards to the future of this journal.

Our understanding is that Diversity and Distributions is planning to transition from the previous, traditional subscription model to an author-paid article-processing-charge-based open access model. We certainly applaud the desire to transition to open access, as we share the philosophy that scientific literature should be freely available to the broadest possible audience, including researchers, educators, and students in both developing and developed countries, in wealthy as well as resource-challenged institutions, and so on. Certainly, some open access model represents the future of scholarly publishing in our field.

Nonetheless, we are very concerned about the article processing charge funding model that is planned for your open access transition (we understand to be US$2200 per paper). As you will have appreciated, the community of authors that supports your journal with quality and innovative papers, as well as with expert editing and peer-review, is impressively diverse, coming from all corners of the globe and from institutions of many types and levels. As such, while some of the current community of authors will be able to afford such publication charges, many will not, especially in countries with the greatest biodiversity.

We are particularly concerned that those authors whom we most wish to encourage and include in our scholarly enterprise are precisely those that will be excluded from full participation because they will not have the financial resources to publish in Diversity and Distributions. The monthly salaries of some of these academics are less than US$1000 or even less than US$500, so the planned article processing fees will be prohibitive. Indeed, even for many researchers in more prosperous countries, these fees are extreme, because the researchers must distribute ever-dwindling financial resources to supporting students, research, or other uses, instead of supporting the high cost of publications. (We note that the average article processing charges across open access journals is approximately $1400, and even that is prohibitive for many.)

We are extremely concerned about this issue, and are unanimous in opposing this transition that you have planned. We would urge you instead to use a different funding model, such as “platinum open access”—a funding model that relies on some external subsidy to make journals open both to readers and to authors, with no charges. We realize that this funding model represents a major challenge, but we note the availability of open source journal-management software, as well as low-cost commercial arrangements, that can make a less expensive arrangement feasible. Should you opt to continue with a model based on significant article processing charges, however, as a group, we will be forced to seek other venues for publishing our work and that of our students and research groups.

In sum, we urge you to reconsider this transition to this expensive open access model. We applaud the idea of open access, yet we are concerned that the consequence will exclude from your journals the work of many researchers for whom publishing in Diversity and Distributions will become prohibitive. As such, we oppose your current open access plan, and hope that you will look for or develop a more acceptable, equitable, alternative. We are at your service should you require any further information or discussion.

Very sincerely,
