What does this open access agreement mean for authors?
When an article is published gold open access, the final published version (or Version of Record) is permanently and freely available online.

Corresponding authors at participating institutions may publish their article gold open access with a fully funded Article Publishing Charge (APC). Authors will be able to choose to publish open access if their article is accepted to the journal following peer-review.

Each institution has an allocation of articles which can be made open access under the agreement.
