Germany: Cambridge University Press reaches OA agreement

CUP reaches ‘read and publish' agreement with German academic library consortium.

Cambridge University Press (CUP) has announced an Open Access agreement with higher education and research institutions across Germany.

The agreement has been reached with the Bavarian State Library (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, BSB) on behalf of the German academic library consortium which includes universities, academic libraries and research institutions.

The three-year ‘Read and Publish’ agreement covers both access to a publisher’s journals and the article processing charge that authors from that institution would usually pay to publish their works OA with that publishers.

Authors from institutions affiliated to the consortium can publish publicly-financed research articles in the Press’s hybrid journals. In addition, consortium members will have full access to their choice of four collections of Cambridge University Press journals.
