Academic publisher Oxford University Press (OUP), has announced a transformative three-year Read and Publish agreement with major journals consortium, the Japan Alliance of University Library Consortia for E-Resources (JUSTICE).
Under the agreement, members of the JUSTICE consortium that opt-in will be able to rapidly increase the proportion of articles that they publish open access in OUP journals. The consortium’s institutions will also benefit from discounts on article processing charges (APCs) for fully open access journals, as well as comprehensive access to OUP’s full collection of high-quality journals.
The Read and Publish deal is OUP’s first national agreement in Asia and its 30th worldwide. OUP has a substantial publishing programme in Japan, with approximately 5% of OUP journal articles currently authored by Japanese researchers. As a result of this agreement, authors at participating institutions will benefit from increased opportunities to publish open access.Click here to read the original press release.
