We are excited to announce that, starting with this issue 17(1), our journal Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) will be published Open Access on the HOPE platform of the Hauptbibliothek of the University of Zurich; you can access our new SComS at www.scoms.ch. HOPE refers to Hauptbibliothek Open Publishing Environment. Located in and managed by a Swiss academic institution, this platform provides full open access to SComS contents, with a strong commitment to a transparent and qualitatively excellent publication process, whilst guaranteeing no publishing fees for our authors. We are grateful to Elsevier for our collaboration, which lasted from 2012 to 2016; now the moment has come for us to be open to the future. Paper copies of our new SComS will still be available – for example, in the main libraries at Swiss universities; but all the contents will be also freely available for everybody to download from our website.
