Academic publisher Oxford University Press (OUP) and the Italian consortium of Biomedical Research Libraries (BIBLIOSAN) have announced a new Read & Publish agreement. As OUP’s first Read & Publish deal with an Italian consortium, the deal is significant in that it will provide online access for Bibliosan’s network, which includes 68 institutions and their researchers, to OUP’s full journal collection of peer-reviewed journals.
Under the agreement, which has been in place since early 2022, researchers at participating institutions are able to publish their research open access in all OUP hybrid and fully open access journals.
According to Moreno Curti, M.D., Bibliosan Coordinator, it is the first year that Bibliosan has signed a Read and Publish agreement with Oxford University Press.
