MSU LIBRARIES AND DE GRUYTER SIGN AGREEMENT TO PROVIDE OPEN ACCESS PUBLISHING FOR MSU AUTHORS | MSU Libraries

“The MSU Libraries have signed a three-year “transformative” read-and-publish (R + P) agreement with the De Gruyter publishing house to provide default open access publishing for all articles by MSU authors in De Gruyter journals. This arrangement means that MSU lead authors publishing in these journals will no longer have to pay the usual De Gruyter article processing charge, which can amount to hundreds of dollars. MSU-authored articles will be visible to all readers, even those without an MSU Net ID, increasing the visibility of MSU research on the internet. The agreement also gives readers with an authenticating MSU Net ID access to articles in a full set of 347 De Gruyter subscription journals. …”
