Some of the University Librariesâ€™ affliations include discounts on Article Processing Charges (APCs) to encourage open access publishing. Discounts are not necessarily applied automatically. Corresponding CMU authors should inform the publisher or note the reduced fee on the invoice.
|American Chemical Society||25% |
ACS members receive a deeper discount.
|Nucleic Acids Research||50%|
|Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences||25% |
Directions at PNAS Open Access Option.
|Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC)||15% |
The University Libraries also receives a limited number of vouchers per year that CMU authors can use to pay for open access to their articles published in RSC journals. The vouchers are distributed on a first come, first served basis. For instructions, see "What is the process for authors under this initiative?" in the RSC Gold for Gold FAQ.
