Elsevier Open Access Guide

Elsevier Open Access Agreement

The CSU system is in the second year of a two-year agreement with Elsevier. It waives the open access fee for articles with a CSU affiliate as the corresponding author. This agreement covers articles submitted between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2021.

Open access articles are published in the journal and on Elsevier’s ScienceDirect platform under one of two reuse licenses: CC BY or CC BY-NC-ND.
