  • Research Article
  • Review Article
  • Report
  • Short Communication
  • Case Report
  • Note

Authors may publish excluded article types as “closed access” or pay an article processing charge (if applicable) to make the article open access.

Acceptance date

Eligible articles that have an acceptance date during the term of this agreement (2023) are eligible to be published open access under the terms of the agreement.

Number of included articles

There is no limit on the number of articles by eligible authors from participating institutions that can be published under the terms of this agreement, subject to the CAUL wide article cap of 3114 for 2023.

Other charges

Other charges, such as colour and page charges, are not included within the agreement and are charged separately by the individual title. Details of such charges are on the journal’s Instructions for Authors page.

Excluded titles

In Otago's list of 2023 titles  in the 'Explanation if not included' column, “Open Select (not included for 2023)”* means that this is a hybrid OA journal that was not selected for inclusion in the 2023 CAUL Read & Publish agreement. Because this agreement has an article cap, CAUL employed a selected title list based on those titles with the highest amounts of publishing in 2021, as a means to ensure that the cap lasts the full 12 months. The list will be reviewed for 2024 and the number of titles will increase due to the increasing article cap.

Corresponding authors from institutions listed under 'Participating institutions' may publish immediately to open access on the publisher's platform once the article has been accepted, with no transactional APCs.

Author rights

Articles from authors at participating institutions may be published under the authors' choice of either
