More Journals in Elsevier's "Sponsored Articles" Program

On May 25, I posted news about Elsevier's "sponsored articles" program, which allowed authors of accepted articles to pay $3,000 US to make their article freely available to readers (on top of any other fees). At that time, it applied to six Elsevier journals:

Nuclear Physics A
Nuclear Physics B
Nuclear Physics B
Proceedings Supplements
Nuclear Instruments and Methods A
Physics Letters B
Astroparticle Physics

As of late yesterday, the list of participating journals has been increased to 40, with the addition of 34 more titles:

American Journal of Otolaryngology
Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics
Artificial Intelligence
Cancer Genetics and Cytogenetics
Cancer Letters
Cardiovascular Pathology
Catalysis Communications
Cell Calcium
Cellular Immunology
Computer Communications
Discrete Applied Mathematics
Epilepsy & Behavior
European Journal of Radiology
Experimental Cell Research
Food and Chemical Toxicology
GenomicsInsect Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
International Journal of Parasitology
Journal of Complexity
Journal of Computer and System Sciences
Journal of Molecular Biology
Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry
Journal of Symbolic Computation
Journal of Systems and Software
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology
Neurobiology of Disease
Surface Science
Theoretical Computer Science

So, Elsevier takes a further step in the "hybrid" OA journal environment (not that they're using the words "OA" or Open Access" at all).
