Video collection: Read & Publish and Open Access

The Company of Biologists has been committed to Open Access since 2004 and we have a track record of innovation. We were one of the first not-for-profit publishers to launch a cost-neutral Read & Publish Open Access initiative and our hybrid journals were the first in the world to be afforded Transformative Journal status by Plan S.

Our Read & Publish initiative has gone from strength to strength, and corresponding authors at over 500 institutions in 39 countries now benefit from fee-free Open Access publishing in our journals as well as access to the journals and their backfiles.

We have had wonderful feedback about our Read & Publish initiative from librarians, authors and editors-in-chief. Hear what they say in our expanding collection of videos.

We have also recorded a series of general and introductory videos on key topics in Open Access publishing – from transformative Journals to transparent metrics.
