Springer Nature publishing agreement

The Springer Nature publishing agreement will soon reach its cap on the number of publications supported. Here’s how you may be able to publish your Open Access articles instead.

ACU Library’s support of Read and Publish agreements has supported 62 articles across several publishers to the value of more than $300,000 this year.

In particular, the Springer Nature publishing agreement has been very successful - so successful that the cap on the number of publications is soon to be reached and by early November, it will not be possible to process Open Access articles under this agreement.

Your article will still be published, but it may be published behind a subscriber paywall.

You may choose to deposit the accepted manuscript of your article with ACU Research Bank where it can be made Open Access after an embargo period.

For more information please contact your librarian.
