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.
