Open Access becomes the new standard in scholarly publishing and is a commitment of the EU research ministers. To cover the costs of publishing open access, authors are billed for article processing charges for accepted papers. Many institutions, funding agencies and foundations are creating Open Access Funds that cover the researchers’ Article Processing Charges (APCs).
Since SciPress is dedicated to providing free access to the latest research without barriers and restrictions, our Institutional Partnership Program aims to support academic establishments through simplifying payment processes and granting discounts for the APCs to authors from participating organizations.
SciPress Institutional Partnership Program is perfect for institutions looking for visibility and supporting their researchers in Open Access publishing. It simplifies payment process and provides financial assistance by reducing some of the fees associated with Open Access publishing. We can adjust our invoicing procedure to meet the needs of each institution.
