Read & Publish: participating institutions

Over 250 institutions in more than 25 countries (see below) are participating in our Read & Publish Open Access initiative.

Under our standard Read & Publish agreements, corresponding authors can publish an uncapped number of fee-free Open Access research articles in our three subscription journals – Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology. Unlimited access to the journals and their archives is also available.

In addition we are piloting variations of our standard Read & Publish model with the Max Planck Digital Library and the University of California. These agreements also include our fully Open Access journals – Disease Models & Mechanisms and Biology Open.

Fee-free Open Access publishing for researchers in 30 developing and transition economy countries: following our Read & Publish agreement with Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL), corresponding authors in 30 countries can publish accepted research articles Open Access free of charge in Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology.
