Heriot-Watt University joins the Frontiers – JISC national open access deal -

The Heriot-Watt University has joined the national open access deal agreed between Jisc Collections and Frontiers. This landmark deal provides a simplified and streamlined route to open access publishing for researchers in the UK, who publish 7% of the world’s research.

Heriot-Watt University supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of this deal, eligible authors may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process.

Eligible authors will benefit from a streamlined invoicing process, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. Furthermore, Heriot-Watt University will benefit from a discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles covered by this agreement.

This agreement will further encourage Heriot-Watt University authors to publish open access, increasing uptake of open access to the results of mostly publicly funded research, to the benefit of the scholarly community and the public at large, while reducing costs.

Authors can submit their articles under this agreement by selecting ‘Heriot-Watt University’ as the payer in the invoice section when submitting their article. Frontiers will then verify their eligibility with Heriot-Watt University and, if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the university upon acceptance.
