Read & Publish: participating institutions

Over 375 institutions in more than 30 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.
