BMC Faculty authors who publish articles in some journals can make their articles immediately open access through the journal sites, without paying an APC (article processing charge). LITS subscriptions to these journals are now "read and publish agreements" (also called "transformative agreements"), which help to shift library subscription payments toward support for open access publishing by waiving APCs.
LITS has read and publish agreements with the publishers listed below.
Bryn Mawr authors who publish in any ACS journal can automatically make any article open access.*
Authors will receive a link to Journal Publishing Agreement by email. Choose "Yes, I wish to publish open access as per the agreement." Your request will automatically be approved with no payment required.
*This agreement is made available because of our membership in PALCI (provider of EZBorrow).
Bryn Mawr faculty authors who publish in any CUP journal to which LITS subscribes should follow these instructions to make their articles open access. Rightslink (which processes APCs) is set up to automatically approve, without payment, any Bryn Mawr faculty who are corresponding authors for their articles.
