Emerald's turn at hybrid OA

I'll keep this short as the news is three days old and has already been caught by the ever-reliable Peter Suber on his blog (
Anyway, Emerald has announced a trial hybrid OA program for their engineering journals, called Emerald Asset. The most interesting thing about Emerald Asset is that no fee is requested from accepted authors; in return for having their articles made openly accessible, authors "will be asked to submit a summary of their research findings highlighting their practical application. "
