Publisher Open Access Negotiations

UC is a major subscriber to scholarly content. We are leveraging this position to negotiate for a more sustainable and open scholarly communications system.

UC OA Publishing

UC supports open access through a variety of local publishing initiatives, including:

  • eScholarship, UC’s open access repository and publishing platform, which hosts 80+ open access journals;
  • UC Press’s open access monograph (Luminos) and journal (Collabra) programs;
  • Publishing discounts or funding support for UC authors who seek to make their publications OA in journals that require an article processing charge (APC).

UC OA Policies

UC seeks to expand the reach and impact of UC scholarship by enabling scholarly articles authored by all UC employees to be freely shared with readers worldwide, regardless of the original site of publication. Deposit your scholarly articles, get a waiver for your publisher, or learn more about how to participate in the UC OA Policies.
