Read and Publish Agreements

University of Dundee researchers can now publish articles Open Access, without charge, in over 10,000 journals as part of our Read and Publish agreements.

The majority of the agreements are open to non-funded research outputs and will be in place from 2020-2024. All publishers signed up to the agreements offer a CC BY (Creative Commons Attribution) licence so researchers can meet their funder's Open Access requirements and those set out in Plan S
