Springer Nature and the University of California Extend Their OA Agreement to Nature Portfolio Journals

As an extension of their landmark 2020 OA agreement, Springer Nature and the University of California (UC) have signed an agreement allowing UC authors to publish OA research in Nature portfolio journals (including Nature, the Nature research journals, and Nature Communications and Scientific Reports), giving them financial support for OA publishing costs via a shared funding model. In 2021, UC researchers published more than 1,300 OA articles in Springer Nature journals, up from 400 in 2020. This new agreement—which runs from Aug. 1, 2022 to Dec. 31, 2024—will make the total of OA articles even higher in 2022. UC students, faculty members, and researchers will continue to have reading access to their currently licensed Nature portfolio journals.

“After already seeing a tripling of OA articles published by UC since our landmark 2020 agreement, it has been clear that together we are supporting the transition to gold OA and all that is the future of open science,” says Carolyn J. Honour, Springer Nature’s chief commercial officer.
