PNAS announces “Publish-and-Read” agreement with Jisc

« The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) is pleased to announce a two-year transformational open access (OA) pilot agreement between Jisc and the National Academy of Sciences (NAS). The “Publish-and-Read” agreement will allow corresponding authors at participating institutions in the United Kingdom to publish OA articles in PNAS without incurring article page charges. Researchers at participating Jisc institutions will also be able to access all PNAS content, dating back to 1915, free of charge. This is the first such agreement between PNAS and a national consortium; Jisc consists of 156 UK universities.
Ken Fulton, PNAS publisher and NAS executive director, says, “We are very pleased to have reached this pilot agreement with Jisc, which ensures that authors from UK universities have a Plan S–compliant route to open access publishing in PNAS. We look forward to analyzing data from this pilot as we explore open access business models. We are also excited to launch our fully open access journal, PNAS Nexus, in 2022.” (…) »
