BOKU scientists are financially supported by the library in Open Access publishing.

-- To be noted: Taylor & Francis: The Agreement is currently closed.--

In 2022, there are transformative agreements with the following publishers:

Springer: Term until the end of 2023

Wiley: Term until the end of 2023

Elsevier: New contract for publications in hybrid journals for 2021-2023, in Open Access journals incl. Cell Press und The Lancet until the end of 2021

The contracts enable a read & publish for almost all hybrid journals of these publishers. The article processing charges (APC) for Open Access in the eligible journals are entirely covered by the library in all of these agreements.

The Open Access platform BioMed Central grants 20% discount on publication costs, which are also covered by the library.

Discounts on APC are granted at MDPI and AAAS for BOKU staff.
