If you are a corresponding author affiliated with a participating institution within the CRUE-CSIC Alliance, the agreement reached means you can publish your article open access with fees covered by your institution.
More than 60 Spanish institutions are participating in the Transformative Agreement between Springer Nature and Crue & CSIC, meaning that corresponding authors* affiliated with these institutions are eligible to publish their articles open access with fees covered. The agreement includes more than 2,200 journals^ across the Springer and Adis portfolios. In addition, you can enjoy full access to all Springer and Adis subscription journal content.
^Nature journals, Academic Journals and Palgrave journals are not covered by this agreement.

Announcement on 2023 article allowance
Please note that for 2023, a number of institutions that are part of the CRUE-CSIC Springer transformative agreement have reached their maximum article allowance. This means the agreement is no longer covering OA publishing fees for affiliated authors until 01 January 2024.
- Universidad de Alcalá
- Universidad de Almería
- Universidad de Castilla la Mancha
- Universitat Politècnica de València
- Universidad Rey Juan Carlos
If you are an author affiliated with the above institutions, the option to publish open access is still available to you, but the publishing fee will not be covered under the CRUE-CSIC 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.
