"Psyche: A Journal of Entomology" converts to open access after 
more than 100 years of publication

The Hindawi Publishing Corporation is pleased to announce that 
"Psyche: A Journal of Entomology" has joined the company's 
growing collection of open access journals. Since its inaugural 
issue in 1874, Psyche has been published by the Cambridge 
Entomological Club and has served as a leading forum for the 
publication of fundamental entomological research. Hindawi is 
currently in the process of digitizing the back volumes of 
Psyche, which will be made freely available on the journal's 
website over the coming months.

"I am extremely pleased that we are able to add a journal like 
Psyche to our open access journal collection and make this 
historic publication freely available to the community" said Paul 
Peters, Head of Business Development for Hindawi. "Moreover, I am 
excited about the future of Psyche and the ongoing support of the 
Cambridge Entomological Club, since I believe that the journal 
can reach new heights within an open access environment."

"The Cambridge Entomological Club is pleased that Hindawi has 
taken on the job of publishing the Club's journal, Psyche" said 
Matan Shelomi, President of the Cambridge Entomological Club. "We 
look forward to the establishment of a modern, professional 
editorial and production process for the journal and are happy to 
see the journal on a road to financial self-sufficiency. As a 
nonprofit educational organization, the Club is especially 
gratified to see the public interest served through the vehicle 
of open access publication."

Psyche is currently accepting new submissions, and all published 
articles will be made freely available under the Creative Commons 
Attribution License, which permits unrestricted use, 
distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the 
original work is properly cited. Further information about the 
journal, including a current list of editors, can be found on the
