Find out more about the Journal Collection

The KU Select 2017 Journal collection includes 21 titles. When we have gained enough support, all 21 journals will be published Open Access for three years beginning in 2018. These journals are currently a mixture of subscription and hybrid journals (10) as well as Open Access journals (11) seeking a new, sustainable funding model.
  • Your researchers can submit and publish OA without any APC charges
  • The sharing of APC charges, allows libraries to budget more effectively, almost halving the cost of an average title compared to its list price
  • Funding of the journal collection means that the average price per title falls to $111 // €105 // £89, and an average price per article is $3// €2.83 // £2.40
  • DRM-free articles
  • Through the journal collection, KU supports both the flipping of journals which are not currently OA, and authors by covering the costs APCs. While the OA funding is provided for three years, KU hopes to establish a model that will continue beyond 2020
Pledge your support for the KU Select 2017 journal collection with 21 journals, which will be published Open Access for three years beginning in 2018. The price for unlatching the collection is per annum = $2333 // €2200 // £1870.
