Academic publisher De Gruyter and the Iowa State University (ISU) University Library have signed a landmark 'read and publish' agreement which represents the first of its kind for De Gruyter in North America.
The pilot agreement, which runs for three years beginning with 2019, allows for all articles written by authors at Iowa State University to be made open access immediately upon publication. In addition, ISU patrons will be provided with access to De Gruyter's 'Research Now by De Gruyter' package, which includes all De Gruyter journals that are subscribed to by North American ARL institutions.
The agreement will play a part in De Gruyter's overall hybrid journal pricing structure, where journal subscription prices are adjusted based on the percentage of open access articles. A deep discount is also provided to ISU authors who publish their articles in one of De Gruyter's many pure open access journals.
