Read and Publish: Welcome

Researchers often wondered where to find some fund to pay for their work to be published as gold open access. The Library and Learning Resources have invested in subscriptions with a number of academic publishers in order to obtain access to the journal contents (see the Read section) but also support our researchers to publish gold open access papers in these journals (see the Publish section).

The Library's pre-paid credits may be able to cover the article processing charges (APCs) under our Read and Publish Deals (R&P deals, see the Deals section), which are also known as transformative agreements or transitional agreements that were nationally negotiated by Jisc with the publishers. You can find the specifications of these deals, the Read and Publish elements, and the help and contacts in this Guide.
