If you’re affiliated with a participating institution, the Ireland Transformative Agreement means you can publish your article open access with the 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 IReL agreement cut-off for 2022
The open access publication service for the IreL Transformative agreement has reached its maximum article allowance for 2022. This means the agreement is no longer covering OA publishing fees until 2023. Until the end of December 2022, you may publish your articles open access with Springer Open Choice, but the publishing fee will not be covered by the Irish Transformative Agreement. View the list of Open Choice journals, including article processing charges (APCs) by journal here. If you need help finding funding for OA publishing fees, Springer Nature offers a free open access funding support service to help authors discover and apply for OA funding.
