OUP agrees new Read & Publish deal in China
03 June 2020
We are pleased to announce a landmark new Read & Publish agreement with the National Science Library, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NSLC, CAS).
Covering 26 of the CAS institutions, the three-year deal is the first of its kind in Mainland China. It provides complete access to OUP’s journals collection for participating institutions, and over the course of the deal will mean that an increasing amount of the research produced by participating CAS researchers is published Open Access.
Huizhou Liu, Director of NSLC commented ‘As an organization that has long been active in promotion of Open Access, we are delighted that OUP is enthusiastic about partnering with us to ensure scientific research results from publicly funded research projects reach the public. Taking this agreement as the starting point, NSLC will be continuously strengthening the implementation of the open access policy of CAS, as well as working to promote the transition towards open access with more partners.’
Rhodri Jackson, OUP’s Editorial Director for Open Access, added, ‘As the largest university press publisher of Open Access research, I’m delighted we have been able to reach this agreement with CAS. Working with the world’s largest research organization to further the transition towards open access and strengthen the exchange of knowledge within the international scientific community is truly exciting’.
