IReL Consortium Signs OA Agreements With ACS and OUP

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) signed a “read and publish” transformative agreement with the IReL e-resource licensing consortium that will last through 2025. IReL represents nine institutions in Ireland. “The read and publish model means that overnight, open access becomes the default option offered to hundreds of Irish researchers publishing with ACS, and its author workflows will make this as easy and frictionless as possible for them,” says Jack Hyland, IReL’s manager.

IReL also signed a transformative read and publish deal with Oxford University Press (OUP). The deal runs for 3 years and allows researchers to access the full OUP journals collection and “enables authors at the institutions to publish their research open access in OUP’s fully open access and hybrid journals without paying individual fees.”                                                   

For more information, read the ACS press release and the OUP press release.
