The Library and Information Services (LIS) is constantly looking to make it easier for you to publish Open Access. One option that is available to our authors is to make use of discount/waiver agreements we have with publishers. We are working on creating a list and hope to have it ready soon.
It can also be difficult to find and select the Open Access journal that is perfect for your work. We will try and give you tools and lists of Open Access journals from specific publishers as they become available.
Open Access journals:
Journal selection tools:
DOAJ has over 12 000 accredited journals with no article processing charges (APCs) in over 500 different subjects.
The Library and Information Services (LIS) is also working on transformative agreements:
Transformative agreements are those contracts negotiated between institutions (libraries, national and regional consortia) and publishers that transform the business model underlying scholarly journal publishing, moving from one based on toll access (subscription) to one in which publishers are remunerated a fair price for their open access publishing services.
Each transformative agreement we make will be added here, with information on what the agreement includes, e.g. how many articles' fees are included for our authors, or if there are any other restrictions. To benefit from these agreements, use your UFS email address when submitting your work to participating publishers. Make sure you indicate the UFS as your primary institutional affiliation.
