Read & Publish Agreements

Read and Publish agreements are contracts between libraries and publishers that allow researchers to read articles in subscription journals and publish articles in open-access journals without additional fees.

The IISc has signed Read and Publish agreements with four publishers:

Cambridge University Press
Company of Biologists
Microbiology Society

Rockefeller University Press

The Royal Society

These agreements provide IISc researchers with a number of benefits, including:

  • Access to a larger number of open-access journals
  • Reduced costs for publishing in open-access journals
  • Increased visibility for their research
