Cambridge University Press Moves Toward More OA

Cambridge University Press announced that it “will request the majority of its journals be given Transformative Journal status by cOAlition S as part of a commitment to transition them to full Open Access.” This means that the share of published OA articles will increase each year until it reaches 75%, at which point, publishing will be fully OA. The organization “also pledge[s] to actively promote the benefits of OA to authors to encourage take-up.”

“While our primary path to a sustainable, open access future continues to be through Read and Publish agreements, the Transformative Journals programme gives a welcome and much-needed opportunity for us to offer a Plan S-compliant publishing route to the many authors not yet covered by such an agreement,” says Matthew Day, Cambridge University Press’ head of open research policy and partnerships.
