Making the most of your Transformative Agreement
Thank you for joining us on our journey to make academic research more open.
Your agreement will allow you to sustainably convert your institution's publishing to open access and enable the research community and beyond to benefit from findings by your researchers. At the same time, your patrons will have continued access to high quality, peer-reviewed journal collections.
This page is dedicated to providing resources, messaging and training to help make your deal a success. We hope you find it helpful and informative. If you have ideas about resources we can add to this page, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Promote Open Access publishing
Did you know that 75% of OA articles get more citations than their non-OA equivalents, receiving on average 30-50% more citations?
A range of resources and information are available across our site to help increase understanding of OA, including a glossary of OA terms, the benefits of publishing OA, and a step-by-step guide to publishing OA with Cambridge. We've highlighted some 'trending resources' on this page - you can add links to these on your web pages, or share in emails or on social media. If you need any banners or buttons to support this work, please email email@example.com.
