Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and Cambridge University Press have entered into a three-year read and publish agreement that allows researchers to publish in Cambridge's suite of journals without incurring article processing charges (APC). This agreement will extend the benefits of open access to CMU faculty who are publishing in Cambridge journals and help remove access barriers to research worldwide.

The agreement is implemented from January 1st, 2021. Under the agreement, Carnegie Mellon's corresponding author will have an opportunity to publish their research open access in Cambridge University Press journals over these three years and will not be charged any APC. The University Libraries will be charged an annual fixed flat rate over the three-year term.

This effort, which follows similar agreements with Elsevier, ACM and PLOS in recent years, will advance CMU's commitment to making research available open access.

Cambridge University Press publishes more than 380 peer-reviewed academic journals covering subjects across the humanities, social sciences, and science, technology, and medicine. More information on Cambridge Open Access publications can be found at Cambridge Core.
