Read and Publish agreements allow journal papers with a Goldsmiths corresponding author, published with certain publishers, to be made Gold Open Access.
The costs of publishing Open Access, through the payment of an Article Processing Charge (APC), are included as part of Goldsmiths' subscription agreement with a publisher: there is no additional Open Access cost when a paper is published.
Read and Publish deals are a way for publishers to transition their subscription journals to full Open Access. The long-term aim is to shift the focus of academic publishing from the subscription model towards making Open Access the default.
Our current publisher agreements are listed on this page under the heading “Publisher Open Access Deals Available to Goldsmiths Authors”: http://research.gold.ac.uk/openaccess.html
Each deal is covered in its own section, with the following headings:
1. Overview of each deal
2. List of journals included
4. Steps on how to apply for OA under the deal
