What is a Transformative Journal?

A Transformative Journal is a subscription/hybrid journal that is committed to transitioning to a fully OA journal. In addition, it must:

  • gradually increase the share of OA content and
  • offset subscription income from payments for publishing services (to avoid double payments).

To apply for Transformative Journal status complete the cOAlition S online form

[UPDATE] 26 January 2023: cOAlition S confirms the end of its financial support for Open Access publishing under transformative arrangements after 2024. In anticipation of this, no new applications to this programme will be considered after the 30th of June 2023.
