The University of California has reached an open access agreement with Elsevier, the world's largest scientific publisher, that will make significantly more of the University's research available to people worldwide — immediately and at no cost.

UC generates nearly 10 percent of all U.S. research output. The deal will double the number of articles made available through UC's open access agreements.

"This development is a boon for researchers, students, and all other members of the public who will be able to read, use, and build upon UC's research and scholarly work," said Marta Margeta, associate professor of pathology at UC San Francisco and chair of the UC Academic Senate's University Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication.

Under the four-year deal, all research with a UC lead author published in Elsevier's portfolio of hybrid and open access journals will be open access by default. University researchers will also be able to read articles published in Elsevier journals.
