Question and Answer

Does the library offer funding to cover open access publishing fees?

We are committed to support open access publication of the scholarship of the UA campus community.

We do this through agreements with publishers that provide prearranged discounts or waivers of article processing charges (APCs), rather than directly subsidizing the APCs for individual UA authors.

We currently have agreements with the following publishers:

  • ACM
  • Biochemical Society
  • BioMed Central
  • Cambridge University Press
  • Company of Biologists
  • Electrochemical Society
  • Frontiers
  • MDPI
  • PLOS Biology
  • The Royal Society

Details about each agreement are available on our Open Access Investments page.
