Read and Publish Agreements: Key Information for Researchers

WHAT

Read & Publish agreements are a form of transformative agreement with a publisher that takes the library’s existing expenditure on subscriptions and repurposes it to cover both reading and publishing in that publisher’s journals. If you publish in a journal that’s included in one of the Read & Publish agreements, you may be able to publish direct to open access with no transactional article processing charges.

WHY

Open access publishing makes your research outputs available globally via the publisher’s platform. This makes your findings accessible to a wider audience, including the public, industry, practitioners, government and researchers in developing countries. Open access publishing supports translation of research into practice and allows other researchers to build on your work. Your research is more visible, potentially leading to higher citation rates and more impact.

HOW

Author publishing workflow. You don’t need to change your publishing practices. Submit where you would normally submit your research and you’ll be notified on acceptance if you are eligible to publish your article open access with no transactional APCs (Article Processing Charges).

1. Submit your article to your journal of choice as usual; 2. Article progresses through the usual publication process including peer review; 3. You’re notified that your article has been accepted and...; 4. you’re given the the option to select OA publishing with no transactional APCs; 5. Your article is published direct to open access under a CC-BY licence
