Over 200 Cambridge University Press Journals Become Plan S Aligned Transformative Journals

From Plan S:

cOAlition S is pleased to announce that Cambridge University Press has committed  209 journals to become Plan S aligned Transformative Journals. These include all 118 hybrid journals that CUP owns and 91 of the hybrid journals owned in whole or part by their society partners. These 209 journals have all committed to transitioning to fully open research by gradually increasing their open access content in line with open access growth targets set by cOAlition S and to gradually offset subscription income from payments for publishing services to avoid “double-dipping”.

You can consult here the list of CUP Transformative Journals. The full list of cOAlition S approved Transformative Journals is available here.
