Rockefeller University Press (RUP) signs Jisc transitional open access agreement for UK higher education -

Non-profit publisher Rockefeller University Press (RUP), a department of The Rockefeller University, has agreed to a deal with Jisc that negotiates open access (OA) agreements with publishers on behalf of all UK universities. RUP is the first US–based university press to sign a transitional agreement with research and education not-for-profit Jisc.

The unlimited “read-and-publish” transitional agreement covers RUP’s three hybrid journals - Journal of Cell Biology (JCB), Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM) and Journal of General Physiology (JGP).

The two-year pilot agreement, which runs from March 2020 until February 2022, enables immediate open access for all UK higher education institutions that opt in. There is no limit to the number of articles that may be published immediate open access during the agreement, as all publishing fees are included in a fixed price.

Under the Jisc agreement, participating UK institutions receive unlimited access to all content immediately after publication and articles of corresponding authors affiliated with these institutions will be published immediate open access under a CC-BY license and directly deposited in PubMed Central (PMC).

Jisc is working with smaller publishers and learned societies to explore innovative ways to make the transition toward OA financially sustainable. Previously, it secured agreements with the following publishers: Microbiology Society, IoP Publishing and another five other learned societies.
