Open Access Publishing Agreements

This guide describes open access publishing agreements for authors affiliated with Washington State University.

American Society for Microbiology (ASM)


Beginning in 2025, 

ASM will adopt a Subscribe to Open model for its six primary research, subscription-based journals in 2025. This aligns with ASM's mission to share its high-impact research with a global audience and accelerate scientific advancement.

S2O will convert subscription journals to open access and allow authors at subscribing institutions to make their research open access without paying APCs (article processing charges). For more information please see, ASM Journals: Subscribe to Open
