Transformative / Read & Publish (R&P) Agreements

This guide provides an overview of the Read and Publish Agreement Negotiated by the South African National Library and Information Consortium (SANLiC). SANLiC has signed a number of agreements for South African Higher Education Institutions. The list of current negotiated agreements is now available allowing South Africans to publish in Gold Open Access journals. 

The Department of Library Services (DLS) is also part of the SANLiC agreements and has recently signed the Transformative Agreements (TAs) also known as Read and Publish (R&P) agreements with Wiley, Emerald, and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) publishers. 

The DLS currently supports researchers with Article Processing Charges (APCs) also known as publication fees. 

These APCs and R&P agreements are efforts to advance open science practices and to increase Gold Open Access Publishing at the University of Pretoria.
