January 2024, Davidson College Library entered into an agreement with Microbiology Society to allow eligible corresponding authors from Davidson College to publish articles under an Open Access (OA) license without further fees. Publish and Read is designed to provide a frictionless OA experience for authors and maximum value for institutions, with minimum administration. It offers institutions an alternative to both subscriptions and article processing charges (APCs).
Corresponding authors from Publish and Read institutions will be identified using their email domains. Where a corresponding author’s email domain matches that provided for a Publish and Read institution, we will ask the author to sign our standard CC-BY Creative Commons licence and will publish their article OA without further charge, and without embargo.
Please reach out to Kelly Denzer, firstname.lastname@example.org, Collections Strategist and Discovery Librarian if you have any questions
