|Comments on cost development||Arrangements with participating institutions are based on a yearly Read & Publish fee.
The publish fee is calculated based on [the average number of articles published by corresponding authors in the past 3 years by the institution] x [APC] x [the overall share of OA articles published in all JB journals].
The read fee is calculated on [the spend on journal subscriptions by the institution] x [100% minus the overall share of OA articles published in all JB journals].
Total fee for the year would be the sum of the publish fee and the read fee.
Publishing is unlimited.
