Do you know that you can publish in WSSA journals for free?

That’s right, open access articles can be published without page charges if your institution has signed a “Read and Publish” agreement with Cambridge University Press. A read and publish agreement removes author page charges from the shoulders of the author and places them on the institution. Cambridge has signed many such agreements with universities and research institutions across the world. To find out how you can get your manuscript published for free in a WSSA journal, contact your librarian to see if your institution has signed a read and publish agreement with Cambridge. This is just one more reason to submit your manuscript to a WSSA journal!
