Yet more open access to research

The Council of Australian University Librarians does a deal with the Company of Biologists

The agreement with the super-specialist publisher is for OA to content and no article processing charges to publish in hybrid and open access journals.

It’s the sixth such agreement announced by CAUL over the last three months  in a concerted campaign to expand reading access, extend publishing opportunities and contain overall costs.

The deals include for-profit journal giants John  Wiley and Springer and mid-size publishers (Cambridge and Oxford UPs). They build on a CAUL base that began  in 2019, with small science publishers, the Biochemical and Microbiology societies.
