As the open access train rolls towards the future more and more traditional
scholarly publishers are jumping on board. The University of California
Press made its move in January, launching two new open access
programmes-Collabra and Luminos.


Collabra is a mega journal that will initially focus on three broad
disciplinary areas (life and biomedical sciences, ecology and environmental
science, and social and behavioural sciences), and then expand into other
disciplines at a later date. Collabra is expected to publish its first
articles in the next month or so. 


Luminos is an open access monograph publisher that will publish its first
book this autumn.


What is the context in which UC Press' move needs to be seen, and what does
UC  Press bring to the party?
