Agreement details

1 January 2021 - 31 December 2023

The IReL-OUP open access publishing agreement allows eligible corresponding authors from UCD to publish original research and review articles open access upon publication at no extra cost.

NOTE: This agreement has a limited OA quota per year. We expect it to be used up by the end of the year. Any updates will be posted on this page.

Eligible journals

All 84 OUP published open access journals and over 360 hybrid journals (subscription journals which include open access content) are included in the agreement. 20 titles are subscription-only so do not currently offer open access - Title lists (correct as of April 2021)

Articles accepted for publication between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 2024 are eligible.

Please note - for articles accepted between January 2021 and March 2021: eligible corresponding authors will be contacted by OUP in late April 2021, inviting them to make the article open access retrospectively. 

Eligible authors

At the time of an article is accepted for publication, the corresponding author must be a current staff member or student of UCD.

OUP will invite eligible corresponding authors to make their articles open access on acceptance, subject to approval by UCD.
