The University of Manchester joins the Frontiers – JISC national open access deal -

The University of Manchester has joined the national open access deal agreed between Jisc Collections and Frontiers. The 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.

The University of Manchester supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of the deal, eligible authors may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost and with a simplified process.

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

The agreement will allow the University of Manchester 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.

For submitting article under the agreement, ‘University of Manchester’ should be selected as the payer in the invoice section. Frontiers will then verify eligibility with the University of Manchester and, if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the university upon acceptance.

Eligibility information can be found at the University of Manchester’s OA page. Information on Frontiers’ institutional agreements can be found at institutional memberships page.
