Elsevier launched the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science's Journal of ­Behavioral Sciences. “It has been a long time in the making,” ACBS president-elect Sonja ­Batten said in a statement. The first issue printed in December.

Wiley and the nonprofit Cochrane Collaboration have renewed their decade-old partnership to publish the Cochrane Library's reviews of healthcare and policy. The agreement includes a provision to make all systematic reviews published as of February 2013 available through an open-access channel one year after Cochrane Library publication.
