Cambridge University Press has agreed an open-access publishing deal with the University of California as part of its push to increase open access across the globe.
The agreement is Cambridge University Press’ first in the United States and the University of California’s first deal with a major publisher. Under the three-year agreement, announced on 10 April, the University of California will have continued access to all 400 journals published by Cambridge press. The agreement also aims to support open-access publishing for University of California authors.
In a statement, the University of California said that there is no significant change in the cost of its contract with Cambridge University Press as the subscription reading fee will go down, countering other increased costs.
