When will more journals be added/Read & Publish agreements signed?
Under the current agreements, publishers and CAUL have agreed on journals to be included that accept APCs and journals that the publishers own the rights to offer Open Access to. Most Gold OA titles are not included under these agreements.
CAUL is working with publishers to provide Read & Publish agreements nationally. UTS Library is taking a considered approach to the uptake of new models with publishers as the long-term impacts are unclear. More agreements and publishers are entering agreements each year and UTS Library reviews CAUL offerings annually.
As Read & Publish agreements are negotiated at a national level, and under the advice of CAUL, individual libraries have been advised not to enter any negotiations with publishers.
