Eligible Journals for Transformative Agreements

From 2021 onwards the following journals are included within our transformative open access agreements. We are pleased to have added more of our society partner journals to many of our agreements (List B and C). Our gold open access agreements typically only use List D.

Eligible journals are split into four lists:

  • List A: Journals included in all transformative agreements;
  • List B: Newly included society partner journals from 2021;
  • List C: Electrochemical Society journals;
  • List D: Gold open access journals.

Please check the journal lists and criteria that apply for your agreement prior to submitting your article from your agreement’s dedicated support page. Please note that while Article Publication Charges (APC) are covered in these agreements, any page charges or publication fees unrelated to open access are not included in our open access agreements.
