Agreement signed with Oxford University Press

A new open access publishing opportunity is now available

The University of Saskatchewan and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) are pleased to announce that it has signed a new three-year, read-and-publish agreement with Oxford University Press.

As a member of the CRKN, the University of Saskatchewan will benefit from unlimited open access publishing in more than 350 Oxford hybrid journals with no article processing charge (APC), and a 10% discount on APCs when publishing in Oxford’s gold open access journals. It is estimated that the agreement will allow approximately 900 articles from the CKRN member institutions to be published in the next three years.

“On behalf of the CSC, we’re thrilled that this agreement has been reached with Oxford University Press,” said Denise LaFitte, Chair of the Content Strategy Committee (CSC). “This agreement will provide participating CRKN members and Canadian researchers with further access to crucial published content and enable their research to be openly accessible for global impact.”

By signing this read-and-publish agreement, CRKN and our member community demonstrate our commitment to transforming scholarly communications. Together, we are building a future where knowledge is accessible to all.

The term of this agreement is January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2026 and includes 69 participants. The complete agreement is available on the CRKN website. There is a list of eligible hybrid journals and if you are interested in publishing there is a step-by-step guide to open access publishing with Oxford for authors.
