Imperial is participating in a Read, Publish and Join agreement with the American Physiological Society. This is a transitional agreement for APS Journals, offering unlimited read access to all paywalled content combined with unlimited open access publishing in the Society's 12 hybrid titles. This model also includes a free one-year membership (new members only) to the American Physiological Society for corresponding authors at participating institutions.

To be eligible for open access fees to be covered via this agreement, the corresponding author must be at Imperial, and the article must have been accepted between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2024. APS will automatically identify these authors based on their institutional affiliation. Upon acceptance of the manuscript, APS will notify the author that their work can be published under an open CC-BY license without paying article processing charges.
