Announcing our New Read and Publish Agreement and bioRxiv channel with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press
To advance the Open Access and Open Science movements at the Rockefeller University, the Rita and Frits Markus Library has entered into a Read and Publish agreement with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, the publisher of the journals, Cold Spring Harbor Molecular Case Studies, Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology, Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Medicine, Cold Spring Harbor Protocols, Cold Spring Harbor Symposia on Quantitative Biology, Genes & Development,Genome Research, Learning & Memory, and RNA
This agreement ensures that our scientists can more easily comply with the open access mandates that various funders have or are looking to put in place.
As science has moved to be more open preprints have become an excellent way of making research as accessible as possible, as soon as possible. Since its inception bioRxiv has become the premier preprint server for biomedical research.
To make it easier to access preprints from Rockefeller University scientists we have worked with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press to create the Rockefeller University channel at bioRxiv. All preprints posted to bioRxiv will automatically and immediately become available in the channel.
We feel this agreement is another critical step to help make the science produced at Rockefeller more accessible to all, something that is in keeping with the University’s motto “Science for the benefit of humanity”
For further information on how to access the new read and publish agreement or if you have questions about the bioRxiv channel please contact either Matthew Covey, University Library, or Rie Goto, Assistant University Librarian.
