CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas), the Spanish Research Council, and IntechOpen are working together to encourage Open Access publishing in Spain. In a new agreement, CSIC affiliated academics and research centres will benefit from heavily discounted publication fees and IntechOpen’s vast experience in Open Access book publishing. Beginning January 2020, the Open Access book publishing fee charged to CSIC researchers across all (STEM & HSS) research output will be reduced by 25%, and 50% of the remaining charges will be paid by a CSIC central Open Access fund managed by URICI, while funds last. Authors will pay the remaining 50% of the fee themselves.
CSIC supports the pursuit of scientific research, with more than 11,000 researchers at its 120 member institutes. It claims to be the largest public institution in Spain dedicated to research and one of the most renowned of the European Research Area. It sits within the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities through the General Secretariat of Scientific Policy Coordination.
IntechOpen is an Open Access book publisher, with a community of over 118,000 authors and academic editors and more than 4,500 Open Access books published since 2004. All books are submitted to relevant abstracting and indexing services including Web of Science, Book Citation Index, Crossref, Google Scholar, WorldCat, BASE, EBSCO, Open AIRE, CNKI Scholar, RePEc, ExLibris SFX.
