UMD Open Access Agreements Total Publishing

The University of Maryland Open Access Publishing Agreement Dashboard was made to allow real-time analysis of UMD's transformative publishing agreements, including the total number of articles approved under each transformative agreement, as well as the cost avoidance to University authors who can publish their article open access without an article processing charge. This data is updated every month. The last update was 12/31/2023

The University of Maryland is participating in 7 transformative publishing agreements, listed below. More information on these agreements can be found on the Publisher Agreements and Journal Discounts page. 

  • Association for Computer Machinery (ACM)
  • Cambridge University Press 
  • Institute of Physics (IOP)
  • Microbiology Society
  • Public Library of Science (PLOS)
  • The Royal Society
  • Wiley

The University has had no use of PLOS to date.

*These numbers may differ slightly from actual publishing numbers, as these figures only represent articles approved under an agreement. Due to the different workflows of individual publishers, some articles are approved during the initial article review process, and others are approved after peer-review.
