New Read and Publish Agreement with Company of Biologists

11 Jul 2023

We are very pleased to announce that the ANU Library has signed a new Read and Publish Agreement with Company of Biologists for the period 2023-2025.

The agreement allows ANU authors to publish open access in the following journals without paying Article Processing Charges (APC):


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

The Company of Biologists is a not-for-profit publishing organisation with a mission to support biologists and inspire biology worldwide. 

They have a long-standing commitment to Open Access as they believe it benefits science.

Their hybrid journals – Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology – were the first journals in the world from any publisher to be afforded Transformative Journal status by Plan S. They were also one of the first not-for-profit publishers to launch a Read & Publish initiative.

Please visit the publisher’s website for more information about their journals.

Further information is available from the Library’s Read and Publish guide.
