UEL Library, Archives and Learning Services has Transitional Agreements (also referred to as Read & Publish deals) with Elsevier, Wiley, and Taylor & Francis. UEL researchers can publish their review and primary research articles open access with no charge to authors in journals that are part of our "read & publish" deals with these publishers. To be eligible to take advantage of the deals you need to be the corresponding author for the output.
You can check which journals are included in our publisher agreements via this link:

APC costs will come from a shared national fund for participating institutions.
Allows access to subscription articles while giving the corresponding authors at UEL the opportunity to publish open access in their Open Select (hybrid) journals without fee.
The deal is in place until the end of 2023 (31st December), and there is an agreed maximum number of open access articles that can be published each year of the agreement. Please be aware that the cap can be reached before the end of the year, in which open access publishing will be paused until renewal.
For UEL corresponding authors, articles must be accepted after the 1st January 2023 to be eligible for the open access publishing deal.
