EIFL’s renewed agreement with Cambridge University Press (CUP), which runs until December 2020, includes free and discounted access to 412 Cambridge University Press Journals for 29 EIFL partner countries.
The agreement also includes read & publish offers for EIFL partner library consortia in Belarus, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. This means that if the consortium takes up the offer to pay a combined fee for accessing content and publishing, then authors from these four countries will be able to publish their articles free of charge in 35 fully open access as well as 332 hybrid journals.
In addition, the EIFL-CUP agreement offers authors from 31 EIFL partner countries the option to publish their articles in open access for free or at discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs) in one of CUP’s 35 fully open access journals. Eligibility is as follows:
Waived APCs for corresponding authors from: Congo (DR), Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lesotho, Malawi, Myanmar, Moldova, Nepal, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe
Discounted APCs for corresponding authors from: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Botswana, Fiji, Georgia, Kosovo, Maldives, Namibia, Palestine, Serbia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan
The Lithuanian Academic Libraries Association (LMBA) has already signed their read & publish agreement with CUP. This allows corresponding authors from Lithuania to publish their articles in open access in all CUP fully open access and hybrid journals during the period of their subscription, until December 2020. Similarly, the Estonian Library Network Consortium (ELNET) has signed a read & publish agreement with CUP which allows five member institutions access to paywalled content as well as free open access publishing for their corresponding authors until December 2022.
