Professor Ronen Zaidel-Bar, Tel Aviv University, Israel
"I chose to submit our work to Development because it is the best non-profit journal in the field. Finding out about the Read & Publish agreement between The Company of Biologists and Tel Aviv University was a welcomed surprise because I'm in favour of Open Access, but can't always afford paying for it from my grants. The process was smooth and we are very happy with the outcome, allowing everyone to read our paper immediately"
Professor Smadar Ben Tabou de Leon, University of Haifa, Israel
"After years of hard work, we were all excited when our paper was accepted for publication in Development. Naturally, we wanted our work to be accessible for everyone that is interested in reading it, but the cost of Open Access is usually a limiting factor. We were therefore delighted to hear that our institute, the University of Haifa, has a Read & Publish agreement with The Company of Biologists. This agreement allows us to publish Open Access, free of charge! This is a win-win for all – the people that did the work and want it to be read as broadly as possible, and the readers that want to have access to new research, when it is fresh out of the oven."
Professor Benny Geiger, The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
"It is my sincere view that open scientific communication within the research community is based on Open Access publication, and I am delighted that The Company of Biologists and the Weizmann Institute of Science found a way to support this mode of publication of our article through a Read & Publish agreement."
"Publishing in the Journal of Experimental Biology helps to ensure that my paper reaches colleagues in my field. Publishing my paper Open Access ensures that it will also be accessible immediately to everyone else – and it was great to be able to do so for free as my institution has a Read & Publish agreement with The Company of Biologists."
Professor Talila Volk, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel
"I was delighted to have our paper published Open Access for free in Development. This is due to a special Read & Publish deal between my research institute – the Weizmann Institute of Science – and The Company of Biologists. Publishing Open Access exposes my article to a wide variety of readers who do not have access to the journal."
Professor Roi Holzman, Tel Aviv University, Israel
"Being able to publish Open Access articles free of charge means that my article gets maximum exposure and has maximum impact, and that all my peers can read it regardless of the agreements that their universities have with publishers. Besides the better exposure, it allows me divert more resources to research, so the benefit is doubled."
