The Library and Information Service has signed agreements with a number of publishers that make it easier for SU researchers to publish open access (OA) with these publishers, and in some cases to even publish OA without paying any article processing charge (APC). Many of these agreements have been negotiated by the South African National Library and Information Consortium (SANLiC), of which Stellenbosch University (SU) is a member.

SANLiC is a non-profit consortium of Southern African academic libraries aimed at negotiating the procurement of and securing access to information resources on behalf of its members, the aim being to deliver a cost-effective result benefiting all members on a national level.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
The library’s agreement with ACM allows SU authors to publish OA in ACM journals at no cost. Authors can opt out of the OA arrangement and publish behind a paywall if they so choose.

Cambridge University Press (CUP)
The Library has signed a Read & Publish agreement with CUP, which covers OA APCs. This agreement allows all corresponding authors from SU to publish research articles in CUP journals at no extra cost. Authors must use their @sun.ac.za email address when submitting an article to a CUP OA journal.

Emerald
The Read & Publish agreement with Emerald for 2022-2024 permits corresponding authors from SU to publish a capped number of articles as OA free of charge in the gold and hybrid journals to which we subscribe. The caps apply to all participating SANLiC members and work on a first-come-first-served basis.

Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) journals on the SAGE platform
The Library’s Read & Publish agreement with SAGE will also permit corresponding authors from SU to publish an uncapped number of articles as OA in the IMechE journals. This collection includes the 16-part Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers as well as two other peer-reviewed engineering journals.

MDPI
SU authors will receive a 10% discount on the APCs for any paper accepted for publication by MDPI.

Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
SU authors will receive a 15% discount on APCs when publishing OA with RSC. The first four articles submitted to RSC by SU authors per year will be published free of charge.

SAGE
The Library’s agreement with SAGE allows corresponding authors from SU to publish an uncapped number of articles as OA in SAGE hybrid titles (SAGE Choice). Eligible corresponding authors will receive a discount of 20% on SAGE’s Pure Gold Open Access Journals. There are a small number of exclusions where SAGE is contractually prevented from offering this discount.

SCOAP³
The Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP³) is a global partnership between libraries, national funding agencies and research institutions from 47 countries, as well as three intergovernmental organisations. SCOAP³ converts subscription journals in the field of high-energy physics (particle physics) to OA through the redirection of subscription funds. The partnership allows SU authors to publish OA in these journals free of charge. The SCOAP³ repository may be found here.

Springer Nature OA and BioMed Central (BMC)
The Library continues to administer the University’s deposit account with Springer Nature (which owns  BMC), which allows SU researchers to submit articles to BMC, Springer Open, Nature Open and Palgrave Macmillan Open journals without having to pay APCs before publication. Submissions under the University’s deposit account will afford researchers 15% discount on the APCs for BMC, Springer Open and Palgrave Macmillan Open titles. No discounts are available for publishing in Nature Open, although the University’s deposit account may be used. Upon publication researchers will have to refund the Library 100% of the APC, plus 15% VAT. By submitting an article to Springer Nature against the University’s deposit account for publication in any of the aforementioned four sets of journals, a researcher agrees to refunding the full cost to the Library after publication. The Library will claim this refund from the researcher upon receiving notification from Springer Nature that an article submitted against the University’s deposit account has been published. (ZAR value calculated at the exchange rate on the day of claiming the refund).

Wiley
The Wiley/SANLiC agreement for 2022-2025 is a Read & Publish OA agreement that will be phased in over this period. In 2022 SU authors may publish free of charge in Wiley’s hybrid OA journals only. There is a cap on the number of articles that can be published without paying APCs, for all participating SANLiC members on a first-come-first-served basis. 2023-2025 will see the inclusion of Wiley Gold OA journals and Hindawi journals.

Bladsy Inhoud
​Die Biblioteek- en Inligtingsdiens het ooreenkomste met ‘n paar uitgewers aangegaan wat dit vir navorsers makliker maak om ooptoegangartikels by hierdie uitgewers te publiseer, en in sommige gevalle selfs sonder om enige publikasiefooie te betaal. Baie van hierdie ooreenkomste is deur SANLiC (die Suid-Afrikaanse Nasionale Biblioteek- en Inligtingskonsortium), waarvan Universiteit Stellenbosch (US) ’n lid is, onderhandel.

SANLiC is ’n konsortium sonder winsbejag van Suider-Afrikaanse akademiese biblioteke wat namens hul lede die koste-effektiewe aankoop van en toegang tot inligtingsbronne onderhandel.

Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
Die Biblioteek se ooreenkoms met ACM laat US-outeurs toe om sonder enige koste hul artikels met oop toegang by ACM te publiseer. Outeurs kan wel kies om nie van die ooptoegangopsie gebruik te maak nie.

Cambridge University Press (CUP)
Die Biblioteek se Read and Publish-ooreenkoms met CUP dek ooptoegangpublikasiefooie. Dit maak dit moontlik vir alle US-outeurs om artikels met oop toegang in CUP-tydskrifte te publiseer sonder enige ekstra koste. Outeurs moet hulle @sun.ac.za e-posadres gebruik wanneer hulle ’n artikel by ’n CUP ooptoegangtydskrif indien.

Emerald
Die Biblioteek se ooreenkoms met Emerald laat US-outeurs toe om sonder enige koste ’n beperkte aantal artikels met oop toegang te publiseer in die Emerald titels waarop die US inteken. Die beperking op die aantal artikels is op Suid-Afrika as geheel van toepassing en aansoeke sal hanteer word in order van ontvangs.

Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) tydskrifte op die SAGE platform
Die Read and Publish ooreenkoms met SAGE laat US-outeurs toe om ’n onbeperkte aantal artikels met oop toegang in die IMechE tydskrifte te publiseer. Die versameling sluit die Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in, sowel as twee ander eweknie-beoordeelde ingenieurstydskrifte.

MDPI
US-outeurs wat by MDPI publiseer, sal ’n afslag van 10% op die publikasiekoste kry.

Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)
US-outeurs kry 15% afslag op RSC se ooptoegangpublikasiekoste. Die eerste vier artikels wat per jaar deur enige US outeur by RSC ingedien word, sal gratis gepubliseer word.

SAGE
Ons ooreenkoms met SAGE maak dit vir US-outeurs moontlik om 'n onbeperkte aantal artikels gratis met oop toegang in SAGE se hibriede titels (SAGE Choice) te publiseer. US-outeurs wat in SAGE se lys van Pure Gold Open Access Journals publiseer, sal 'n afslag van 20% op die publikasiekoste kry. Daar is ’n beperkte aantal uitsonderings waar SAGE kontraktueel verhoed word om hierdie afslag aan te bied.

SCOAP³
SCOAP³ (Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics) is ’n wêreldwye vennootskap tussen biblioteke, nasionale befondsingsagentskappe en navorsingsinstansies in 47 lande, sowel as drie tussenregeringsorganisasies. SCOAP³ skakel subskripsietydskrifte op die gebied van hoë-energie fisika (deeltjiefisika) om na oop toegang deur die heraanwending van subskripsiefondse. Die vennootskap maak dit vir US-outeurs moontlik om gratis in hierdie tydskrifte te publiseer.
Die SCOAP³ tydskrifte kan hier gevind word.

SpringerNature en BioMed Central (BMC)
Die Biblioteek gaan voort om die Universiteit se depositorekening by Springer Nature (wat ook die eienaars van BMC is) te administreer. Dit maak dit vir US-navorsers moontlik om ooptoegangartikels by BMC, Springer Open, Nature Open en Palgrave Macmillan Open in te dien sonder om vóór publikasie outeursfooie aan Springer Nature te betaal. Navorsers wat artikels teen die Universiteit se depositorekening by Springer Nature indien, sal 15% afslag op die publikasiefooie van die BMC, Springer Open en Palgrave Macmillan Open titels kry. Die Universiteit se depositorekening mag ook vir Nature Open titels gebruik word, maar geen afslag is hier van toepassing nie. Daar word van navorsers verwag word om ná publikasie 100% van hierdie outeursfooie, plus 15% BTW, aan die Biblioteek terug te betaal. Deur ’n artikel by Springer Nature teen die Universiteit se depositorekening in te dien, stem die navorser in om die volle koste aan die Biblioteek terug te betaal. Die Biblioteek sal die terugbetaling van die navorser terugeis wanneer Springer Nature ons laat weet dat sodanige artikel gepubliseer is. (Randwaarde bereken teen die wisselkoers op die dag waarop die terugbetaling geëis word.)

Wiley
Die Wiley/SANLiC ooreenkoms vir 2022-2025 is ’n Read and Publish ooreenkoms wat gedurende hierdie tydperk ingefaseer sal word. In 2022 mag US-outeurs slegs in Wiley se hibriede tydskrifte gratis met oop toegang publiseer. Daar is ’n beperking op die aantal artikels wat gratis gepubliseer kan word vir al die deelnemende SANLiC lede op die beginsel van eerste kom, eerste gehelp. Vanaf 2023 sal die Wiley Gold ooptoegangtydskrifte en die Hindawi tydskrifte ingesluit word. Die ooreenkoms kan hier gelees word.
