IReL and Open Access: Annual Reviews

IReL, the Irish Research eLibrary is a nationally funded electronic research library. IReL also seeks to secure open access agreements with publishers.


IReL is participating in Annual Reviews’ 'Subscribe to Open' initiative which makes all articles published in the five pilot journals OA from 2020, regardless of the author’s affiliation.

The five journals are:

  • Annual Review of Cancer Biology
  • Annual Review of Environment and Resources
  • Annual Review of Nuclear and Particle Science
  • Annual Review of Political Science
  • Annual Review of Public Health

The IReL agreement also provides read access to Annual Reviews’ Sciences collection of 48 journals, which includes the above five.
