Open access agreements
We’re partners with global institutions and funders to support researchers to publish gold open access in their chosen journals. If your journal offers gold open access publication, these agreements may mean that eligible authors can publish open access in your journal at no cost to themselves or with a discounted article publishing charge (APC). This could be beneficial to both the author and your journal.
Agreements may not apply to every journal and the specific arrangements will vary. When communicating with potential authors, you may want to be aware of agreements that could be beneficial to them, although individual authors will need to review their eligibility and how to access the funds themselves.
Below we have labelled the transformative agreements by whether they apply to an array of Open Select journals, fully Open Access journals, or both. You can confirm if your journal is Open Select or fully Open Access using the OA Cost Finder, looking under “OA Status”.
Please see the details of the agreements via the links to confirm if your journal is included in each agreement specifically. Inclusion of your journal does not guarantee funds for all eligible authors publishing open access in your journal.
If authors have questions, you should refer them to the open access agreements information to review the agreements directly.
New agreements are being made all the time, so do check back here in future.
