As researchers face a lack of funding to support publishing under open access and struggle with having their work widely discoverable, IGI Global is waiving article processing charges (APCs) when an author’s article is submitted and accepted under open access (OA) to a select list of IGI Global journals through January 1-31, 2020.
This initiative was put in place to support the overall OA movement and enable researchers to increase the citation impact of their work, while enhancing the overall body of knowledge. As a full member of the Committee on Publication Ethics, all IGI Global journals undergo a rigorous double-blind peer-review process and are featured in prestigious indices, including Web of Science and Scopus.
Interested parties may submit your manuscript between January 1-31, 2020 to any of eligible journals; select “Open Access Publishing” as the publication option. Once the manuscript has gone through the double-blind peer review process and is accepted for publication, in lieu of a formal invoice being processed for the APC collection, the article will instead be marked as “fee waived” and the work will promptly be released electronically under the Open Access Creative Commons Licensing of IGI Global.
This is a critical opportunity to increase the visibility and discoverability of your research and to allow your colleagues around the world to have access to your research findings free of charge, which can also increase citation impact of your work.
Ahead of this offer, IGI Global provides year-round OA APC waivers when an institution invests in the InfoSci-Journals (185+ e-journals) database and/or InfoSci-Books (5,300+ e-books) database through IGI Global’s OA Fee Waiver (Read and Publish) Initiative. This initiative provides 100% OA APC subsidies when a paper is submitted and accepted into an IGI Global journal.
