The EUI LIbrary supports the members of the EUI academic community in their efforts to publish Open Access through specific 'transformative' agreements with publishers.
The Library agreements, valid between 3 and 5 years, can waive the Open Access publishing fees usually charged to the author in nearly 3,700 journal titles published by Springer, Cambridge University Press and Wiley, as well as with Cogitatio Press.
Monographs (Books) in Open Access and the Book Processing Charge (BPC) fees are not covered by the agreement.
The agreements described below allow EUI corresponding authors to publish their articles in Open Access without paying any Article Processing Charge (APC). You know your journal of interest but don't know if it is published by CUP Springer or Wiley? Search the journal in Sherpa and know immediately the publisher, or browse the journal lists by publisher!
The transformative agreements are concluded thourgh the Italian consortium CRUI. A list of negotiations and contracts is available (in Italian). The Cogitatio agreement is indvidual between the EUI library and the publisher.
