An agreement has been reached between UK universities and Elsevier (negotiated by JISC Collections) for a Read & Publish Transformative Agreement from 2022. The UK Elsevier agreement maintains access to paywalled (non-open access) content and enables unlimited open access publishing in Elsevier Core Hybrid, Cell Press & Lancet titles, when corresponding author is affiliated with the institution. Separately, we have a 15% discount when publishing in Elsevier’s full gold OA titles.
This agreement brings the number of publisher Transformative Agreements available to University researchers to 27 and should ensure that most research output can now be published open access in compliance with funders including UKRI and the Wellcome Trust.
Further details are available via the Elsevier website; if you have any questions, contact the Open Research team.
