New Opportunities for Open Access Publishing

New “Read & Publish” Deal with Cambridge University Press

The Libraries are happy to announce that a new OhioLINK agreement with Cambridge University Press offers some exciting new benefits to Wooster faculty, students, and staff. This deal provides expanded access to published research from Cambridge University Press and is the first “Read & Publish” deal with an open access publishing component for OhioLINK.

In addition to expanding our access to Cambridge journals, an important new component of this agreement is the ability for authors at OhioLINK member institutions to publish open access (OA) journal articles at Cambridge University Press-published journals at no additional charge to either the author or the institution. In order to be eligible to publish open access at no cost in a Cambridge journal under this deal, the corresponding author of the article must be affiliated with an eligible OhioLINK institution (of which Wooster is one). Access to the publishing benefits begins on January 1, 2022, and continues through December 31, 2024. To be eligible for free OA publication, articles must be accepted for publication between these dates.
