Read & Publish

In addition to the Read and Publish Agreements signed in 2022, new Agreements have been signed with Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, AIP Publishing, IOP Publishing, and IWA Publishing, effective for articles accepted from 1 January 2023.

Please note:

  • not all journal titles are eligible under the Elsevier and Taylor & Francis agreements, and that publishing caps (limits) will also apply. View the title lists linked from the Read & Publish webpage for further information
  • the Wiley  Agreement has been expanded to include both hybrid and open access Wiley and Hindawi titles.

These agreements allow researchers to publish direct to Open Access with no transactional Article Processing Charges (APCs), providing more equitable access and enhancing potential research impact. Some key points to note:

  • Not all publishers offer Read & Publish Agreements
  • Not all journals are eligible under the agreements UniSA Library has signed. Details of each agreement can be found at
  • Journal articles for eligible journals will be accepted from UniSA corresponding authors, using their UniSA email address, and made available under a Creative Commons CC-BY Licence (or a variant thereof)
  • Each agreement may have different conditions. For example, some publishers will allow unlimited submissions, whereas other publishers may set a limit that will apply across all participating universities in Australia.
