Open Access

Read & Publish

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 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.

Publisher Titles

Included titles
The agreement allows for publishing in 388 titles. Titles include high impact titles such as Acta Numerica, British Journal of Psychiatry, and Political Analysis. Titles with high Australian and New Zealand authorship including the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Public Health Nutrition, and Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union, amongst many others.

How to submit your article for open access publishing

  • On acceptance of the article, CUP will ask the corresponding author to complete a form (publishing agreement).
  • The corresponding author selects Gold Open Access and confirms the licence type (i.e. CC-BY).
  • Rightslink works on the publisher's behalf to manage the APCs. When the  submitting author is from an eligible CAUL institution, the APC will be automatically waived.
