Read & Publish Agreements

Within the framework of Read & Publish agreements individual institutions, or so-called consortiums can cover 100% of the article processing charges of the affiliated authors. Unless stated otherwise by the author, articles are automatically published open access (under CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND license). In addition, the agreements involve database and journal subscriptions. 

The University of Debrecen has the agreement with the following publishers: 



Corresponding authors are eligible to a 100% publication fee support, if their articles were accepted for publication in 2019 by any of the Springer Open Choice (hybrid) journal. It involves more than 1,850 journals from which our researchers can choose. Only the Original Paper, Review Paper, Brief Communication and Continuing Education type of articles are covered by this agreement. 

Once the article is accepted for publication, Springer will notify the author about the availability of the institutional support.  You will receive an email with a link to the MyPublication process pages, where you can acknowledge the funding.  

For more details, see the Guide to publishing by Springer Nature or contact




To receive a financial support for publishing in Wiley’s journals, it is a criterion for the corresponding author to be affiliated with the University of Debrecen. The agreement applies to Primary Research and Review Paper articles accepted after January 15, 2019 to all journals of the publisher.  

To be eligible for a financial support you must make a statement when submitting your article.

Within the frameworks of the aforementioned agreement, the corresponding authors of the University of Debrecen are eligible for a 100% APC fee support if their article was accepted between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019 by one of the journals that belong to T&F Open (Hybrid), T&F Open Select (Hybrid), Routledge or Cogent's OA. All Original Paper and Review Paper are suitable for funding.

The identification of the author is made during the submission of the article after the author has completed the MyPublication form. Identification is based on the selected institution, email address and IP domain. 




An agreement was also reached with the Elsevier, starting July 1, 2019. From that date, corresponding authors will be able to acknowledge the received financial support when submitting the article. Based on the ongoing negotiations this agreement shall be applied to articles submitted after July 1, 2019 and accepted before December 31.  

Corresponding authors have the opportunity to publish in nearly 1,750 journals of the Elsevier at no cost to them.  






Please note: Publishers may invoice APC fee to the name of the author. If you do not receive notification within 2 working days that your institution has completed the transfer, please contact the library at


Please note: The financing of the publication fee shall be limited to the article processing charges (APC). Other extra costs, such as page cost or color chart fee cannot be supported.
