Publish and read agreements

Through publish and read agreements (also known as read and publish or PaR), researchers no longer have to incur any additional costs for open access publishing in the subscription journals (hybrid Open Access) of the publishers concerned. At the same time, a comprehensive right of access to publishers' content that is not yet available in Open Access is provided.
