University of Nevada, Reno members can choose to publish their articles as open access (OA) in many Cambridge journals without having to pay any fees, thanks to a new agreement between the University Libraries and Cambridge University Publishing.
The agreement applies to any article containing original research where a university member serves as the corresponding author. It applies to both gold OA Cambridge journals, which are entirely OA, and hybrid Cambridge journals, where authors can choose to make their article OA. This includes more than 350 journals published by Cambridge. The process is easy for authors – just ensure you use your university email when submitting. The agreement lasts through 2023.
Open access publishing helps make research freely available to everyone and ensures scholarly findings aren’t locked behind a paywall. Studies have found that it can help increase the impact of research, including through increased citations.
This comes as part of a new read-and-publish agreement between the Libraries and Cambridge, which also means everyone in the University community can continue to access material from Cambridge journals.
