Queen's Transformative / Read & Publish agreements
Queen's researchers can now publish open access with no charge in journals that are part of a "transformative" or "read & publish" agreement. "Transformative" or "read & publish" agreements are a way for publishers to transition their subscription journals to full open access. The costs of open access are part of an overall Queen's payment covering both subscriptions and open access publishing. The open access charges are part of the agreement, therefore Queen's authors will not have a fee to pay when their paper is published.
Queen's Transformative / Read & Publish agreements are detailed below.
You should contact firstname.lastname@example.org before submission to enquire if the library has funds or a publisher agreement to suit you.
Queen's authors should also ensure that they are listed as the corresponding author. (Many agreements require this for eligibility)
