Full compliance for co-authors and for authors in subscription journals
If your institution has an uncapped agreement with Cambridge University Press, we now guarantee a clear route to full UKRI compliancy, for all research articles, through our latest policy of ‘Green-by-Exception’. It means that research articles are fully compliant, even those in non-OA journals, which can be deposited in institutional repositories without embargo through this new policy.
For full details, including information on co-authors being included in this policy, read our blog post.

- Be original research – eligible article types are research articles, review articles and rapid communications, brief reports and case reports.
- Be accepted for publication in a Cambridge University Press journal covered by the agreement.

Information for librarians
The R&P offering with Jisc has been designed to offer flexibility so that institutions can select an option that fits best with their current situation. If an institution is in a position to completely transition to OA publishing in Cambridge journals that option is available, but if an institution would prefer a slower rate of change that’s more manageable for them the agreement can accommodate alternative approaches.
If you have any questions, please contact your usual Cambridge representative or firstname.lastname@example.org.
