Springer open access pilot for UC authors

The California Digital Library (CDL) and Springer have signed a ground-breaking agreement in which UC-authored articles accepted in most of the 1700 Springer journals will be published using Springer Open Choice, which brings with it full and immediate access to all readers. This means that UC authors will pay no additional publication fees in order for their articles to be immediately and fully open to all. Under this agreement, articles will be published under a license in which authors retain the right to distribute and re-use their articles freely.

The UC-Springer agreement is the first large-scale open access experiment of its type undertaken with a major commercial publisher in North America. In 2008, some 1500 journal articles by UC-affiliated authors were published in Springer journals.

For more information, see the joint press release (PDF) or talk to your librarian. You can also read more about it in a recent Daily Cal article.

This post is adapted from a post that originally appeared in What's New in the Library.

Get reference help 24/7

It's 11 pm and you are in desperate need of reference help from a librarian. You check the library's website and see that the Science Libraries IM service (screenname: ucbscilibs) isn't available, and the library's not open. Your question is un-Google-able. Wikipedia has failed you. Despair not!

Get help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from a real live librarian* through the new Ask a Librarian service. Ask a Librarian is a chat reference service that connects you to a librarian and emails you a transcript of your chat so you can reference it later. Try it out at Ask a Librarian.

*Please note that the librarian you will be connected with may be a Berkeley librarian, a librarian from another UC, or a librarian from another University.
