Cambridge Journals Read-and-Publish Agreement

Lyrasis members have an exciting new opportunity to join a Cambridge University Press Journals read-and-publish agreement. Expand your institution's content access while supporting researchers and open access through an affordable partnership with one of the largest and oldest university presses in the world.

Libraries joining this agreement receive full access to CUP's Complete Journal Package of 400 titles across a wide range of subject areas and gain uncapped (with very few exceptions), no-cost gold open access publishing by your institution's corresponding authors in all of Cambridge's hybrid and gold OA journals. Your library will also receive guaranteed annual increases of 1.5%, well below industry standards. This agreement entails a fee increase averaging $2,500 per library. If your spend with CUP is $0, a minimum spend averaging $4,000 generally applies. For details of how the offer works, view the slides from Cambridge's Fall 2022 presentation to Lyrasis members. Libraries are welcome to join the agreement for the 2024-2025 period.

Read-and-publish pricing is based on your institution's current subscription spend and publishing rate with Cambridge, along with other elements. Not all libraries may be eligible to participate in this agreement. To learn more, please email Michael Rodriguez.

Lyrasis has negotiated a central license agreement with the best possible terms. Participating institutions placing new orders will be asked to agree to abide by the terms at that time.
