If you are affiliated with a participating institution, the Ireland transformative agreement means you can publish your article open access with fees covered, in more than 2,000 Springer hybrid journals.
In addition, you can enjoy full access to all Springer subscription journal content. Established by IReL, this agreement will run through 31 December 2024.
Announcement on 2023 article allowance
The open access publication service for the IreL Springer transformative agreement has reached its maximum article allowance for 2023. This means the agreement is no longer covering open access publishing fees until 2024.
The option to publish open access via Springer Open Choice is still available to you, but the publishing fee will not be covered under the IreL agreement until 01 January 2024. Authors should use alternative funding sources in order to publish open access or proceed with publication under subscription until the agreement is reactivated. If you need advice on what open access funding is available to you, please visit our funding & support service page. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, contact the open access team at your institution.
