New Read and Publish Agreement with CSIRO Publishing

23 Jan 2024

We are very pleased to announce that the ANU Library has a new Read and Publish (RAP) agreement with CSIRO Publishing.

The new agreement will accelerate progress towards open science and allow ANU authors to publish open access in all 22 CSIRO Publishing journals without having to pay Article Processing Charges (APCs).

Disciplines covered by CSIRO journals include Botany, Chemistry, Zoology, Agricultural sciences and Health sciences.

The agreement represents savings to the University and 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. ANU authors who have already had an article accepted in a CSIRO Publishing 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.
