Rutgers University announced a historic, transformative open-access partnership with Elsevier, a global leader in information, scientific research, and analytics that publishes leading academic journals including The Lancet and Cell.

This agreement marks an important step toward making the results of Rutgers’ research openly accessible, increasing its readership and impact, and ensuring it is globally and permanently available.

The five-year arrangement managed by the Rutgers University Libraries will make over 4,600 journals, 1,400 of which are fully open access, accessible to the Rutgers community.

“This agreement will serve as an amplifier for our scholars and the university by furthering the reach of our research output and its impact on a global scale. It also demonstrates the Libraries’ and the university’s commitment and resolve to ensuring equitable access to information,” said Prabhas V. Moghe, executive vice president for academic affairs. “This achievement is part of a growing list of transformative agreements negotiated by the libraries.”
