To support more open and sustainable scholarly communication initiatives, Tarleton Libraries has entered into two publisher agreements which allow Tarleton affiliated researchers and authors to publish their accepted journal articles open access (OA) without needing to pay an article processing charge (APC). Each publisher will still go through the peer-review process for submitted articles. After article acceptance and publication, readers around the world will then be able to view and access the article without encountering a paywall. Open access allows for greater exposure of your research and the potential for higher citations and more downloads.
Cambridge University Press publishes a wide range of high-quality journals through their platform, Cambridge Core. There are over 370 journals in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, technology, and medicine qualified for OA publishing per the established agreement. Publications eligible under agreement include research articles, review articles, rapid communications, brief reports, and case report.
The Company of Biologists is a not-for-profit publishing organization dedicated to supporting and inspiring the biological community. The publisher believes that offering immediate and free access to research is essential to supporting the scientific community. Publishing open access allows for easier compliance with funder mandates and provides higher visibility of articles.
