As part of the University of Kansas’ support in making research more widely available, KU Libraries have agreed to an institutional membership trial agreement with Frontiers, enabling KU and KU Med-affiliated corresponding authors to benefit from a 7.5% membership discount on article processing charges (APCs) in any of Frontiers’ journals until the end of September 2022.
In addition to the discount, insights into institutional activity will be included in data reports to be made available directly to University of Kansas Libraries.
The discount will be automatically applied if KU-affiliated corresponding authors submit manuscripts with a University of Kansas institutional email address. If they submit via another email domain, but indicate KU as the affiliation on the paper, Frontiers will verify eligibility for the discount with KU Libraries. As such, KU-affiliated corresponding authors should use their institutional email address to submit a manuscript whenever possible.
It is expected that this agreement will further encourage University of Kansas authors to publish open access.Click here to read the original press release.
