Learn about Read & Publish


The Biochemical Society and Portland Press are transitioning towards open access (OA). To support and accelerate this transition to OA, we are offering pilot deals to several hundred institutional subscribers through Read & Publish alternatives to regular subscriptions (i.e., transformative renewals) facing individual institutions and via ‘transformative’ agreements signed with consortia.

Transformative Renewals


Marking the first step to transitioning publishing models, we’re excited to have launched a pilot transformative offering for ̴700 global subscribers. Active from 2020, our optional ‘Read & Publish’ renewal initiates a route to full open access publishing, providing an inbuilt solution to the burden of transacting individual article publishing charges.
