New Read and Publish Agreement with Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory

04 Jun 2024

We are very pleased to announce that the ANU Library has a new Read and Publish (RAP) agreement with leading publishers in molecular biology, cancer studies, neuroscience, plant biology, and genetics, Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory Press.

The new agreement will advance and spread scientific knowledge in all areas of genetics and molecular biology, by allowing ANU authors to publish their work open access in a selection of CSHL journals without having to pay Article Processing Charges (APCs).

The agreement represents savings to the University and ANU authors, and will allow more publication of ANU research as open access, with all the additional benefits that brings. 

The agreement covers all of 2024-2026. ANU authors who have already had an article accepted in a CSHL journal in 2024 are eligible to convert that article to open access without being charged an APC. 

Further details about the agreement, the journals covered by it and how ANU authors can publish open access under the agreement are available in our Read and Publish Agreements guide

All announcements regarding RAP agreements are on the Library website.
