Elsevier-Ireland Agreement

Elsevier and a consortium of Irish institutes have established a pilot agreement to enable continued reading access for Irish researchers and to enable open access publishing. When publishing in applicable Elsevier journals, authors will be able to choose to publish open access at no additional cost to the author.

Use our journal search tool to find eligible titles.


  • The author must be the corresponding author affiliated with an eligible institution
  • The article must have an acceptance date between 1.1.2020 and 31.12.2022

On publication, the final published article will be made freely available on ScienceDirect under the author’s choice of open access license (CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND).

How to publish your article Open Access?

Once your article is accepted for publication in an applicable journal, you will be presented with the open access publishing option.

Green open access

Irish authors can continue to choose to publish under the subscription model and self-archive their manuscript in line with Elsevier’s sharing policy.
