Read & Publish: participating institutions

Over 470 institutions in more than 30 countries (see below) are participating in our Read & Publish Open Access initiative.

Unlimited access to journals and their archives: Unlimited access to our three hybrid subscription journals – Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology – and their archives dating back to 1853 is available to all institutions listed below.

Fee-free Open Access publishing for corresponding authors: Depending on whether their institution has chosen a three- or five-journal package, corresponding authors can publish an uncapped number of Open Access research articles in our journals as follows, without paying an article processing charge (APC).

Three journal package: our hybrid subscription journals (Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology)

Five journal package: our hybrid subscription journals (Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology) plus our fully Open Access journals (Disease Models & Mechanisms and Biology Open)

We are also piloting variations of our standard Read & Publish model with the Max Planck Digital Library and the University of California.

Fee-free Open Access publishing for corresponding authors in 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 without paying an article processing charge (APC) in Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology.
