Cambridge University Press Journals

MU Libraries has entered into a transformational "Read and Publish" agreement with Cambridge University Press. This agreement greatly expands electronic access to Cambridge University Press journals and provides 10 APC waivers for MU corresponding authors to publish their work OA.

Because of the limited number of waivers available with this agreement, MU Libraries has decided to support Assistant Professors on a first come, first served basis for 2021. If there are any remaining waivers at the end of 2021, MU Libraries can retroactively make other articles OA with the approval of the author.
