You Could Benefit from Read and Publish Agreements in ASPB Journals

As institutions and funders around the world require authors to publish with journals meeting certain open access standards, authors may feel like their options for journals in which to publish are becoming more limited. However, there’s hope for authors wishing to publish in ASPB’s Plant Physiology and The Plant Cell, as both journals benefit from read and publish deals reached with Oxford University Press that make them compliant with Plan S and other open access publishing directives by other major institutions around the world.

This article details the benefits of read and publish deals for both authors and institutions and links to valuable resources to help authors better understand whether their institutions are part of an agreement that makes publishing open access in Plant Physiology or The Plant Cell possible for them.
