JXB uses the optional OA model where authors can elect to make their articles available immediately with the publication fee typically paid by a research grant or parent institution.
While there was slight evidence of increased use over time, it was not as significant as with JXB.
JXB's 16 air cargo terminals will enjoy direct connections to the adjacent Jebel All Free Zone (which is itself being extended), creating the world's largest logistics hub.
JXB will be part of the Dubai World Central development, previously named JAIC, that will feature a 140 sq mile (362k[m.sup.2]) development comprising the airport, Dubai Logistics City, commercial city with over 850 towers, aviation city, science and technology park, residential city and the region's largest golf resort.
The $1.8 billion JXB is at the centre of the massive Dubai World Central (DWC) urban aviation community being built in Jebel Ali just 25 miles (40km) from Dubai city centre and will be linked to the existing Dubai International Airport (DXB) via an express light rail system as well as a dedicated road network.
Once it is finished JXB will have a terminal dedicated for use by Emirates Airline and another for regional and other foreign carriers.
Passenger facilities are not due to be ready until 2015, when passenger flights will start to be moved from DXB to JXB.
It is not yet clear as to who will use the new airport--no official announcements have been made--but Emirates seems likely to have exclusive use of either DXB or JXB.
The combined passenger handling capacity of DXB and JXB is projected to exceed 190 million passengers annually by 2010, with approximately 70 million passengers passing through DXB and 120 million through JXB.
