In addition to the existing Read & Publish agreements signed in 2022, new agreements effective from 1 January 2023 have been signed with Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, SAGE, AIP Publishing, IOP Publishing, and IWA Publishing.
Please note that not all journal titles are eligible under the Elsevier and Taylor & Francis agreements, and that publishing caps will also apply. See the publishers listed below for links to the title lists.
A Read & Publish agreement spreadsheet (access with UniSA login credentials) which lists journal titles by publisher, and includes Field of Research and quartile information from Journal Citation Reports (using the same information as in internal university reporting) is now available. Although this list will be updated regularly it should be used for preliminary reference only, as a second step you should then check the journal website to see the latest information prior to submitting the article. If you would like additional confirmation of a particular journal's eligibility or have any questions, please contact Ask the Library.
Some Read & Publish agreements include a limit or 'cap' on the number of journal articles that can be published in a calendar year. This applies to articles published by AIP Publishing, Elsevier, Oxford University Press, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, and Wiley and Hindawi.
Reports are available to show the current cap status. These can be found where applicable under the relevant publisher below, in the State of current caps tab.
The Library monitors the cap situation and provide regular updates via reports, newsletters and research committees.
Contact Ask the Library if you have any questions.

The Library is participating in several Read & Publish agreements with major publishers to support UniSA academics wishing to publish Open Access. This page will continue to be updated as further information becomes available. Please contact Ask the Library if you have any questions.
These agreements allow researchers to publish direct to Open Access with no transactional Article Processing Charges (APCs), providing more equitable access and enhancing potential research impact.
