Open Access Agreements by Publisher

The TIB on behalf of the Leibniz University has signed up to a number of open access agreements with publishers. These institutional deals give members of the Leibniz Universität Hannover (researchers, staff, students) a range of benefits, enabling corresponding authors from LUH to publish open access free of charge or at reduced rates in selected titles.

Many of those agreements are Read & Publish (R&P) Deals, offering open access for subscription (hybrid) journals. R&P Deals are known as transformative agreements and aim to transition towards a full open access model. Therefore they are in line with funder requirements such as Plan S as well as LUH's open access policy.

To qualify, researchers must be a corresponding author and use their LUH e-mail address @uni-hannover.de.
