Open Access

Read & Publish

Read and publish banner

Under the Gold open access model, authors pay an Article Processing Charge (APC) to the publisher of a journal to cover publishing costs, and to make the article immediately openly accessible. Usually, authors pay this charge, include the amount in grant applications, or seek support from their institution.

The Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) consortium has negotiated agreements with a range of publishers under a Read & Publish scheme as part of our usual subscription agreements. Beginning in 2022, Notre Dame authors who submit papers and are accepted for publishing in a nominated (but wide) range of gold open access journals, will not be charged transactional APCs. All Australian universities have signed up for this scheme, and although there are caps on numbers of articles under the agreement for some publishers, it is a wonderful opportunity for researchers at our university.

The journals included in the scheme are published through Cambridge University Press*, CSIRO Publishing*, Oxford University Press, Springer, and Wiley. Explore the tabs below to view included titles and the article submission process.

*These publishers have no cap on article allowances.

CAUL has produced a report with approval and rejection statistics for capped agreements so that universities and authors can monitor the cap status. See the link below to access the report.

Publisher Titles

Included titles
The agreement allows for publishing in 388 titles. Titles include journals such as Ageing and Society, British Journal of Psychiatry, and Political Analysis. Titles with high Australian and New Zealand authorship including Public Health Nutrition and Australasian Journal of Special and Inclusive Education, amongst many others.
