Open access publisher Frontiers and the Norwegian Directorate for ICT and Joint Services in Higher Education & Research (Unit) have signed a landmark national agreement. The terms of the agreement will simplify the publishing process for Norwegian researchers who publish in Frontiers’ journals. The deal includes a national discount on article processing charges (APCs), centralised, flexible invoicing, payment options, and dedicated support for library staff dealing with APCs.
The Frontiers – Unit Open Access Framework Agreement highlights the commitment of Norway’s research community to make research universally and freely accessible. The agreement will initially run for three years from January 2020.
Beginning January 2020, 27 institutions represented by the Unit can publish in Frontiers’ open access journals at a discounted rate. Researchers at these institutions will have access to Frontiers’ Open Science tools, including collaborative peer-review, article and author impact metrics, and scholarly social sharing tools such as the Loop research network.
