The Davidson College Library entered into a Read and Publish agreement with The Company of Biologists beginning January 2023. The offer provides unlimited “read” access to our three subscription journals – Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology – plus uncapped fee-free Open Access publishing of research articles for Davidson College affiliated corresponding authors under CC BY license terms, with authors retaining copyright.
The Company of Biologists has been committed to Open Access since 2004.
For more information refer to The Company of Biologists website.
The following steps are taken from The Company of Biologists Guide for authors. For more information refer to their website: https://www.biologists.com/library-hub/read-publish/guide-for-authors/
Corresponding authors at institutions with all Read & Publish agreements can publish Open Access research articles without paying an article processing charge (APC) in our journals. The corresponding author (CA) has an important role, taking primary responsibility for communication with the journal (through submission, peer review, revisions, proofs etc), ensuring that all co-authors agree to the contents of the manuscript (and any revisions) and that all matters comply with the policies of the journal, as well as signing the Publication Agreement and arranging payment of an article processing charge, where required. The CA should check their funder mandates carefully to ensure they select the appropriate OA publishing route. If a CC-BY license is required, please select Gold OA.
Davidson College corresponding authors can publish in 3 journals: Development, Journal of Cell Science and Journal of Experimental Biology.
