  • Changes are here: Publishing open access journal articles with Cambridge University Press

    Starting in 2020, the University of California’s system for open access publishing with Cambridge University Press will be fully in effect, under the transformative open access agreement first announced in April 2019.  Funding is available from the UC libraries to cover open access publishing fees.

Grant-funded authors will be asked to pay a portion of the cost, when feasible, but they, too, will find open access publishing much more affordable thanks to added support from the libraries.
