Open Access Publishing with Cambridge University Press

Open Access

The Library has entered a ‘Read & Publish’ Agreement with Cambridge University Press (CUP) to enable corresponding LU researchers to publish Open Access* (OA) in CUP’s journals within the Humanities and Social Sciences Collection (HSS Collections).  [*with conditions applied]

This marks the FIRST OA agreement that the Library commits, anticipating to maximize the accessibility and impact of LU’s research outputs. 6 articles published by LU researchers have taken advantage of this agreement to become OA:
