The Royal Society signs ‘read and publish’ deal with Jisc -

The Royal Society has signed an agreement that grants researchers at participating universities the ability to read and publish an unlimited number of articles. The Royal Society has for the first time agreed a ‘read and publish’ deal with Jisc. Participating universities will pay for subscriptions to paywalled content and article processing charges with just one yearly fee.

Many researchers are required by their funding agreements to publish their research ‘open access’. The deal means the Royal Society’s publishing policies are compliant with the requirements of major funders including UKRI, Research England, the Wellcome Trust, NIH, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, HHMI and the European Commission.

The deal also removes the need for researchers to pay an article processing charge (APC) to publish their work ‘open access’; a requirement which became cost prohibitive for researchers in niche or less well-funded disciplines.

The deal is also compliant with Plan S, a publishing initiative that requires all scientific publications that result from publicly funded research to be released via open access journals from 2021.
