What are “read and publish agreements”?

“Read and publish agreements", often called transformative agreements, seek to shift the contracted payment from libraries to publishers away from subscription-based reading and towards open access publishing. If the corresponding author is affiliated with CERN, articles will be automatically detected and published open access for journals published by Elsevier, IEEE, IOP and Springer Nature. To verify if your co-authors benefit from “Read and publish agreements”, please consult the individual lists of institutions via the publishers’ respective websites: Elsevier, IEEE, IOP and Springer Nature.
