Nature Communications is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published online-only by the Nature Publishing Group since 2010. The editor-in-chief is Lesley Anson. It is multidisciplinary in scope, with coverage that includes all topics in physics, chemistry, Earth sciences, and biology. Since October 2014, the journal only accepts submissions from authors willing to pay an article processing charge. Whereas access to these submissions will no longer require a subscription, Nature claims that content submitted prior to the switch still requires a subscription.[1] However some later items do require payment, for example a paper submitted in April 2015, and published 29 July 2015 is behind the $32 paywall.[2]
