Walker Library Support for Open Access: Read & Publish

Read & Publish (waived APCs)

Read & Publish agreements or Transformative agreements are multi-year license agreements for journal subscriptions managed by the library. They stipulate the subscription pricing for the library and waived APCs for MTSU authors who wish to publish an open access article. Walker Library has entered into multi-year Read & Publish agreements (2023-2025) with Cambridge University Press and with The Company of Biologists.

Information for authors

Many publishers (including Cambridge and the Company of Biologists) use Rights Link to manage APCs. During the publishing process authors are prompted to request that fees be waived and the system sends the requests to the library for approval.
