Read and Publish


Contact Dana Whitmire if you have any questions about Read and Publish agreements.

What is Read & Publish?

Read and Publish, also known as a transformative agreement, is an open access model that bundles payment for reading access and payment for publishing into a single contract.

UT Health San Antonio Library participates in several Read and Publish agreements which aim to serve authors and the wider community by publishing high-quality, peer-reviewed OA content. This waives publishing fees for authors who wish to publish in open access.

Benefits for authors:

  • Take advantage of an institutional agreement that covers your Open Access publishing fee or provides a discount
  • Publish under a creative commons license to determine how readers can use your article
  • Increase visibility for your research, leading to higher citations, wider reach and global impact.
