Open access publishing: What is Read & Publish?

Read & Publish deals

“Read and publish agreements", often called transformative agreements, seek to shift the contracted payment from libraries to publishers away from subscription-based reading and towards open access publishing.

If the eligible author is affiliated with US, articles will be automatically detected with the organization and the publishers will assist the authors. The Library is contacted by the publishers to verify the author's status at the University.

Authors may have to complete online forms as per the publisher's systems.
