This is the second issue of Studies in Communication Sciences (SComS) as a full open access journal at our new home (www.scoms.ch). Open access in the “platinum” version endorsed by SComS is most readily associated with the benefits it has for authors in making their work accessible to a global audience without any delay and without incurring any costs. At the same time, open access allows journals such as SComS to operate more independently of commercial interests, to exert greater control over their content and the production process, and to realize their visions of an academic journal.
