What does this mean for you as a researcher?
From January 2020 you can publish your research open access in Wiley journals without any cost. This applies to both pure open access journals and hybrid journals.
From January 2020 you can publish your research open access in SAGE hybrid journals. If you publish in SAGE pure open access journals you get 20% off (you can still apply for the rest of the cost from our temporary open access support: https://www2.bibl.liu.se/oafond/login_en.aspx
The new agreements are so-called transformative agreements, which means that researchers can disseminate their research openly and compliant to funder open access requirements. The transformation means that over time these journals become purely open access and that the lowering cost of reading is displaced by covering the publishing costs of an increasing number of articles written by LiU researchers.
Linköping University Library now have agreements in place with the largest publishing houses in the world – Springer, Taylor & Francis, and starting 2020 Elsevier, Wiley and SAGE – as well as a number of smaller publishers and learned societies.
