‘Science’ publisher is launching a free-to-read journal

One of the most prestigious scientific publishers is launching a new journal that will be open for everyone to read. Titled Science Advances, it will be the first open-access journal from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the nonprofit publisher behind Science — a journal generally considered to be among the very best in its field. The new publication will debut early next year and cover a broad scope of disciplines, and AAAS plans to broaden Science‘s scope as well to allow both journals to serve an increasingly broad audience.

Publisher behind iconic Reader’s Digest takes a second trip through bankruptcy

Reader's Digest stock 1020

For the second time in under four years, the publisher behind Reader’s Digest has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. RDA Holding Co. says it expects this second trip through Chapter 11 to wrap within six months, after which it hopes to emerge with 80 percent less debt — though still $ 100 million in the hole.

“After considering a wide range of alternatives, we believe this course of action will most effectively enable us to maintain our momentum in transforming the business,” said RDA’s CEO Robert E. Guth. He insists the publisher is on…
