This is a truly exciting development which will hopefully lead to greater

Access is not always lost when you stop your subscription to an online
resource, although I agree it is a common model. But it is this very
scenario that was the context for Internet Archaeology's decision to
ensure that all of our individual and institutional subscriptions
always purchased permanent access to content.
And hopefully this will only be required for a little while longer..
This is something of an aside to the original thread, but this seems
like a good a time as any to announce that from December, Internet
Archaeology's back catalogue (up to and including issue 21) will be
made Open Access and a subscription charged only on content from the
last 5 years (i.e. issue 22 onwards). Open Access content will also
continue to be published where the development costs of an article are
met, as has been Intarch policy for the last 2 years. So I hope that
this shows the journal fully in transition and demonstrates our
commitment to the end point. The plan is for this to be a "rolling
wall" that moves as and when the journal's already increasing OA
submissions rise sufficiently to the stage where the tipping point is
reached and we can consider taking the next big step.
