One of the LYRASIS Content and Scholarly Communication Initiatives team’s core principles<https://www.lyrasis.org/content/Documents/Values-of-Content-and-Scholarly-Publishing-Infographic.pdf> is Connectivity, shown through our work across communities to foster collaboration for broad and meaningful impact. Therefore, we are very excited to announce a new principle-aligned partnership with the University of Toronto Press<https://utorontopress.com/> to build a funding community in support of the Journal of City Climate Policy and Economy (JCCPE)<https://jccpe.utpjournals.press/>.

JCCPE is a new Subscribe to Open peer-reviewed journal that publishes evidence-based policy and economics research in support of cities around the world as they focus on human-centered solutions to today’s most pressing climate challenges. C40 Cities<https://www.c40.org/> is a network of mayors of nearly 100 world-leading cities collaborating to help limit global heating to 1.5 degrees C and build healthy, equitable and resilient communities. The C40 Centre for City Climate Policy and Economy<https://www.c40.org/what-we-do/raising-climate-ambition/centre-for-city-climate-policy-economy/> supports JCCPE as it brings together a community of researchers, city practitioners, and leading economists to provide mayors and policy makers with the evidence, analysis and guidance needed to implement climate action policies.

Help sustain Open Access publishing of this journal through Subscribe to Open

JCCPE is available through a Subscribe to Open (S2O) model in order to achieve broad dissemination of content. S2O is a sustainable and equitable revenue model that does not include article processing charges. Institutional subscribers access the content through subscription, as with a regular subscription model. Once an annual subscription threshold is met, the volume year becomes available as Open Access (OA). This makes the content available to all without any cost to authors.
