Subscribe to Open
Subscribe to Open (S2O), similar to Read and publish agreements, describes a model in which subscription journals allow open access publishing on a flat-rate basis.
With S2O, existing subscribers agree to maintain subscription payments if the journals switch to an open access model. Because of the continued revenue stream, there are usually no article-processing charges for authors either. It is thus a win-win situation. If too many institutions cancel their subscriptions because the content is now freely accessible, the publisher will switch back to the old subscription model.
Accordingly, S2O relies heavily on the commitment of participating institutions to remain or become subscribers in order to maintain open access in the face of fluctuations within the subscription base. The University Library also supports S2O.
