OUP and the Spanish National Research Council announce Read and Publish agreement -

Academic publisher Oxford University Press (OUP) has announced an agreement with the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) for a Read & Publish deal including access to OUP’s prestigious journals collection. The agreement will last for five years and will provide access to over 350 journals published by OUP. Under the agreement, CSIC authors will be able to publish via Open Access across a range of hybrid and fully Open Access journals published by OUP.

This agreement forms part of CSIC’s stated strategy of moving away from the traditional licensing model based on content subscription and payment for reading. Agnès Ponsati, CSIC’s Director of the Unit of Scientific Information Resources for Research hopes to promote Open Science by working with scientific publishers to establish Open Access arrangements like the Read & Publish model.

CSIC claims to be the largest public institution dedicated to research in Spain and the third largest in Europe. CSIC consists of 120 institutes (67 on its own and 53 joint institutes in collaboration with 43 public universities). Belonging to the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, CSIC’s main objective is to develop and promote research that will help bring about scientific and technological progress, and for this purpose it collaborates with a wide network of Spanish and foreign entities.
