New agreement between Jisc and Copernicus Publications

27 January 2023

Copernicus Publications is delighted to announce a new agreement with the UK-based Jisc (Joint Information Systems Committee). Jisc provides a platform making it easy for their members to sign up for institutional agreements with Copernicus Publications. More information can be found in the Jisc news item.

Besides the University of Exeter that signed up independently in 2022, the first two members to join are the University of Oxford and the University of Lancaster. Their agreements will take effect for all submissions starting on 1 February 2023.

Both Oxford and Lancaster cover any article processing charges (APCs), as long as the first or corresponding author is affiliated with the respective university and the paper lists a UKRI (UK Research and Innovation) funding source.
