Collection updates

The objective of this resource is to inform the UNSW community of changes to the library collection and transformative agreements the University has entered into for open access publishing.

Liverpool University Press S2O

Agreement duration: The UNSW agreement is from 1st January 2022 - 31st December 2022. News of whether Liverpool University Press has reached their target for 2023 is still forthcoming.

Summary: Liverpool University Press is a non commercial university press publishing in the humanities and social sciences fields of research.

Titles included: Town Planning Review, International Development Planning Review.

Information for authors: The Subscribe to Open (S2O) agreement allow UNSW Library to subscribe to the journals that UNSW requires. Subscription payments go to support open access publication rather than read only access. With this model accepted articles from UNSW eligible corresponding authors will be published Diamond OA, meaning there are no author fees and the article will be immediately available under a CC-BY licence.

Sharing via repositories: This agreement aligns with UNSW's Open Access policy and authors can upload their Author Accepted Manuscript (AAM) and link to the publisher version/PDF.

Corresponding authors should not use personal email addresses (e.g. Hotmail, Gmail) or email addresses affiliated with other organisations, research centres or institutes. Otherwise they may be ineligible under the terms of this agreement.
