This new read & publish deal with Elsevier means Oxford Brookes Library has made agreements that include Gold Open Access publishing with all the major publishers of Oxford Brookes research: Elsevier, Cambridge University Press, Sage, Springer Nature, Taylor & Francis, and Wiley. These are publishers of nearly two-thirds of the articles authored by Oxford Brookes researchers.
