Imperial is participating in the Portland Press unlimited read and publish pilot, which provides the College with an uncapped number of OA articles from affiliated corresponding authors. This includes all seven Portland Press journals (five hybrid titles plus two full-OA journals).

Eligibility for OA under a Read & Publish deal is dependent on affiliation of the corresponding author at the time of manuscript acceptance.

Upon acceptance the editorial team will check to confirm affiliation of the corresponding author to a participating institution. If eligible, an email will be sent to the researcher (corresponding author) to confirm that the manuscript will be published OA (without any requirement for APCs/charges) under a live Read & Publish agreement between Portland Press and the relevant institution.

Portland Press Read and Publish agreement.

 If you have any questions regarding this agreement or the process please contact the open access team.
