Cell Press and The Lancet titles now included in UC-Elsevier open access publishing agreement 

We are pleased to announce that beginning September 1, 2022, UC corresponding authors publishing in Elsevier’s prestigious Cell Press and The Lancet journals will be able to publish their articles as open access with financial support from the UC libraries, regardless of whether they have research funds available to pay for open access publishing.

All authors who choose to publish open access will receive a 10 percent discount on the open access fee (also known as an article processing charge, or APC) and the UC libraries will automatically pay the first $1,000 of the APC. For authors who do not have funds available to pay the remainder, the libraries will cover the full cost of the APC on their behalf, ensuring that lack of research funds does not present a barrier for UC authors who wish to publish open access.

For more details please visit the agreement page at UC’s Office of Scholarly Communication or contact UC Davis Library’s Scholarly Communication Officer Michael Ladisch (
