Jisc and the Royal Society of Chemistry have extended and revised their transformative agreement until the end of 2024. Now utilizing all previous expenditures to support open access (OA) publications, the deal covers all expected publishing output in the Royal Society of Chemistry’s hybrid journals portfolio.
Rapidly increasing OA publishing in the UK and offering full funder compliance, the deal means that authors at qualifying institutions can make articles publicly available in the society’s hybrid portfolio at no cost to them.
Researchers at participating institutions can also benefit from fast publication times, a reduced financial and administrative burden when publishing, and a substantial boost to their own profile as a scientist.
