Open Access (OA) publishing is now supported by new ‘Read and Publish” agreements negotiated by CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) on behalf of Australian and New Zealand university libraries.
These agreements between CAUL and four major publishers enable authors to publish their papers as open access in selected journals without paying separate Article Processing Charges (APCs) as the payment of the APCs is covered by the Library’s online subscription to the journals packages.
The journals covered by Oxford, Springer and Wiley agreements are hybrid journals as they are part of a subscription package. Cambridge University covers both Gold and Hybrid journals included in the subscription package.
To read further information on Gold and Hybrid OA publishing models, see the Publishing page of this guide.
Instead of paying article processing fees through a separate University fund, the Library will fund open access publication through its collection subscription fees budget.
If you have an article accepted for publication in a listed journal you may be eligible to publish your article open access at no additional cost.
There is no need to change your publishing practices. Publish where you would normally publish and you'll be alerted of the option to publish open access on acceptance by the publisher if your article is eligible.
The responsible corresponding author must be affiliated with Bond University at the time of acceptance and state this on the submitted paper.
The responsible corresponding author should use a Bond University email address. You may need to update your profile with the relevant publisher. Responsible corresponding authors should not use personal email addresses (e.g. Hotmail, Gmail).
Make sure that you state Bond University as your primary institutional affiliation.
If you are a co-author, you may want to ensure the corresponding author is from a university with Read and Publish (R&P) Agreements in place.
After the peer review process and upon acceptance of the paper, the publisher will confirm the details of the R&P Agreement.
The Library is participating in negotiations with several publishers. In 2022, agreements are in place with:

Each publisher has its own particular R&P agreement process that authors will have to navigate their way through.
