The Max Planck Society has established a new transformative open access agreement with Nature which allows corresponding Max Planck authors to publish open access in Nature and other Nature Research journals (except Nature Review journals) under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY); under the agreement, the article processing charges will be paid centrally by the MPS.
It also covers read access to all Nature journals (incl. new launches).
The agreement will be in effect from January 1, 2021. Articles published online after January 1, 2021 are eligible – relevant is the online publication date.
