Oxford University Press is doing some interesting things with their Open Access experimentation.
- The article charge fee for publishing in an open access mode in Journal of Experimental Botany is now waived for authors who are at institutions that subscribe to the journal -- such as Washington University. All primary papers published after April 1, 2007 whose corresponding author’s institution subscribes to the Journal of Experimental Botany will be published Open Access.

- In addition, they are adjusting their prices! The 2008 online-only prices of Oxford Open journals have been adjusted to reflect any increase in the amount of open access versus non-open access content published in each journal in 2006 compared to the amount in 2005. Generally, the more open access content published in a journal, the lower the future online-only price. However, the picture is sometimes complicated by other factors such as changes in page extent, issue frequency, and exchange rate adjustments. The range of discounts is from 1% to 19%.
