Transformative publisher agreements

Transformative agreements are a way for publishers to transition subscription journals to full open access. The open access costs are part of an overall UCL payment for subscriptions and publishing.

Which papers can use UCL's transformative agreements?

UCL's transformative agreements (listed below) cover open access costs for: 

  • research and review papers;
  • with a UCL corresponding author who is a full member of staff or student;
  • in subscription and fully open access journals included in the agreement.

To enable papers funded by the UK Research Councils (UKRI), the Wellcome Trust and other funders to be published open access, UCL authors with relevant funding are encouraged, where appropriate, to act as corresponding author.

Journals in UCL's transformative agreements by subject


This list is updated frequently as new agreements become available, so is it advisable to check the original rather than saving a copy. If your journal appears in this list, check the relevant publisher below for details of which articles and authors are covered.

How to use UCL's transformative agreements

When you submit, ensure that you are listed, with your UCL affiliation and UCL email address, as the corresponding author. This will enable the publisher to identify your paper as eligible to be published open access under the CC BY licence. Please check the publisher list below for specfic instructions. Since some publishers do not allow co-corresponding authors to use their agreement, it is recommended that only one author, affiliated with UCL, acts as corresponding author. Contact UCL's Open Access Team if you have any questions.

Other publication charges

Transformative agreements do not always cover other mandatory publication charges, such as page charges. Authors are advised to ask their journal's editorial office, before submission, whether any non-open access publication charges apply, and, if so, request a waiver. UKRI and Wellcome do not fund page, colour and other non-open access publication charges.

Deposit/prepayment arrangements

Transformative agreements are sometimes confused with prepayment/deposit arrangements, which are are a method of paying for open access at a discount. UCL's normal eligibility criteria for open access funding apply to these arrangements, including with BioMed Central, Elsevier, Frontiers and Taylor & Francis/Routledge.

Transformative journals

Transformative journals are subscription journals that meet specific criteria and may provide a route to compliance with the Wellcome Trust/UKRI open access policies. See our Wellcome Trust/UKRI webpages for more information.

                                                                                            Coverage: Research and review papers in most subscription and fully open access journals. See lists of fully open access and subscription (hybrid) journals covered, and/or UCL's list of journals in transformative agreements.

                                                                                            Responsible Corresponding Authors (see below) who are graduate or chartered members of the British Psychological Society are entitled to publish open access in BPS journals. See the BPS webpages for information about this offer. Please use this offer instead of UCL's transformative agreement, by selecting British Psychological Society as your funder in Wiley's submission system.

                                                                                            Publication charges: Some Wiley journals charge mandatory publication charges that are not included in this agreement. Authors are advised to ask their journal's editorial office, before submission, whether any non-open access publication charges apply, and, if so, request a waiver. UKRI and Wellcome do not fund page, colour and other non-open access publication charges.

                                                                                            How to use the agreement: Use your UCL affiliation and email address when you submit. This allows the publisher to identify your paper as potentially eligible for the agreement. 

                                                                                            For papers with multiple corresponding authors, only those whose Responsible Corresponding Author is affiliated with UCL may use this agreement. The submitting author will be asked to identify the Responsible Corresponding Author after acceptance (see below). The Responsible Corresponding Author completes the remaining pre-publication activities, and their institutional affiliation is used to determine eligibility for a transformative agreement.

                                                                                            Subscription journals:

                                                                                            1. After acceptance, log in to Wiley Author Services.
                                                                                            2. Select which author(s) are Corresponding Author(s). Their contact information will appear in the final published article.
                                                                                            3. Choose one corresponding author as the Responsible Corresponding Author. This must be a full (not honorary or visiting) UCL member of staff or student, except where the paper is funded by a relevant funder (see Restrictions above).
                                                                                            4. In the open access section, select 'Yes, make my article open access'.
                                                                                            5. The Responsible Corresponding Author will be asked to provide details of any relevant funding.

                                                                                            Fully open access journals:

                                                                                            UCL's Open Access Team will be notified of your request, and will check that your paper is eligible before approving it.

                                                                                            Licence: You may be offered a choice of Creative Commons (CC) licences. Note that research funders require authors to choose CC BY.
