What does the Jisc Read & Publish agreement offer?

Jisc Publications Router Service
The Company of Biologists is now providing full-text Open Access (OA) articles for distribution to UK institutional repositories via Jisc’s Publications Router service. This means that the version of record is delivered automatically to authors’ institutions, usually within seven weeks of acceptance, together with rich and authoritative metadata.
The Jisc Publications Router Service is available free of charge to Jisc-member higher education institutions with compatible systems.
Partnership with OA Switchboard
The Company of Biologists has partnered with the OA Switchboard to simplify and streamline the transfer of OA publication-level information to libraries and funders. Jisc member institutions can sign up to the OA Switchboard free of charge until the end of 2023 here.
