Elsevier Science Direct Gold OA Pilot

Are you a corresponding or sole author for an article accepted by an Elsevier Science Direct journal between January 2020 and December 2021?

If so, you may be eligible to publishing open access at no cost to you! The Gold Open Access pilot program is part of the most recent contract negotiated between the CSU and Elsevier.

The CSU Libraries Network has provided information on how to determine your eligibility. Elsevier has also provided a video outlining the steps you would take to take advantage of this option. You will be asked to authenticate as a CSU affiliate to access the video.

If you have any questions after reviewing the materials, please contact Dana Ospina (, Digital Initiatives Librarian.
