UEA Read and Publish Deals

UEA Library and RIN have signed up to several Read and Publish transitional journal agreements that cover Article Processing Charges (APCs) for UEA- affiliated corresponding authors. (These agreements cover UEA staff and postgraduate students).

The following list details the publisher deals that provide open access article publication at no additional cost to the author. Additional publication costs (such as page or colour charges) are not covered by these deals. Please note that these deals usually only cover the costs for research articles. If you are writing a different type of article, please contact the RIN Open Research team for advice.

If your chosen publisher is not listed below, you should consult the RIN Open Access Publishing Agreements page as there are some agreements taken by RIN that are not Read and Publish deals (no Read costs) and are funded solely by RIN, (e.g. PLoS).
