Read&Publish Transformative Agreements

Starting from July 2020 SISSA has signed a few so-called Transformative Agreements with some of the major STEM journals publishers. These agreements have been reached thanks to Italian CRUI consortium, and generally mean that SISSA users have the possibility to:

  • access online subscription based journals
  • publish open access in hybrid journals at no additional cost (because APC are covered by SISSA)

The number of available articles per year is estimated to cover most of the demand and is set by Crui and the Publishers for the entire consortium, there is no previously fixed number of articles for each participating University. When the maximum of articles for the current year is reached, exceeding articles may be published open access only if the authors pay the fee.

No author will be obliged to publish open access, but all authors are invited to do so.

Before the article is actually published, the affiliation indicated by the author has to be validated by the library staff, only when the validation is granted, the author will receive a confirmation.

Authors will maintain their copyright.

Colour images and reprints are not included.
