Thanks to Greg at Consequently for the news that the journal, Informal Logic: Reasoning and Argumentation in Theory and Practice has gone open access. They have decided to stop taking physical subscriptions and move toward open and online access.

This is a big shift — not just the move from paper copy to virtual copy, but also from closed to open access. I believe that the closed access high cost model of academic publishing is not only indefensible in today’s climate, it is potentially deleterious to research, especially given the pressures universities are often under to control staff numbers and the amount of good academically oriented writing now being done outside the academy (especially thanks to the growth of think-tanks).
