This article updates you on the latest Library subscriptions and collection developments. These include national, large-scale read-and-publish (R&P) agreements coordinated by Surf, along with tailored bilateral subscriptions.

New Read and Publish deal Microbiology Society

The Microbiology Society publishes the following six, peer-reviewed journals in virology and microbiology offering research papers, review articles and commentary on topical issues:

The agreement provides unlimited access to the paywalled content in all Microbiology Society journals, including the entire archive.

Corresponding authors affiliated with WUR may immediately publish in open access on the publisher's platform once the article has been accepted, with no transactional Article Processing Charges (APCs). For the publisher, the corresponding author is the author who submits the article to the journal and corresponds with the publisher during the publication process. Only this author can receive the discount. For further details on the 100% APC discount and journal metrics, please consult the WUR Journal browser.
