New Read & Publish Agreements in 2023

New Read & Publish Agreements in 2023

In addition to the existing Read and 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.

New - List of journals by publisher with FoRs and journal quartiles

A new Read & Publish Agreement spreadsheet 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. Please note that the list will be updated regularly so if you download a copy be sure to use the latest version available from this link. To access the list you will need to login with your staff or student UniSA credentials.

Update on publisher caps

With some of the Read & Publish Agreements, there is a limit or 'cap' on the number of journal articles that are published in a calendar year. This applies to articles published by Elsevier, Oxford University Press, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, and Wiley and Hindawi.

Reports are available to show the current cap status, these are embedded within the relevant publisher tab below.

Please contact Ask the Library if you have any questions.

Read & Publish Agreements

The Library is participating in several Read & Publish Agreements with major publishers to support UniSA academics wishing to publish Open Access. The Library has also independently entered into agreements with several other publishers. 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.

Some key points to note:

  • Not all journals are eligible under these agreements.
  • Journal articles will be deemed eligible for corresponding authors, using their UniSA email address, and made available under a Creative Commons CC-BY Licence (or a variant thereof)
  • Each agreement may have different conditions. For example, some publishers will allow unlimited submissions, whereas other publishers may set a limit that will apply across all participating universities in Australia.

Not all publishers offer Read and Publish Agreements.
