Open Access Publishing Support at Temple University Libraries

Temple University Libraries supports faculty and students who want to make their work openly available.

Our Open Access Publishing Fund helps Temple researchers who would like to publish in open access (OA) journal but do not have the funds to cover the article processing charge (APCs) that a number of OA journals require.

 

In addition, thanks to various memberships and subscriptions paid for by the Libraries, Temple authors receive discounts on APCs from the following publishers:

American Association for the Advancement of Science

A 15% discount is available for Temple authors publishing in Science Advances.

American Chemical Society

A $500 discount is available for Temple authors who choose ACS "AuthorChoice."

BioMed Central/SpringerOpen

Temple authors who publish in BioMed Central or SpringerOpen journals will receive a 5% discount on APCs. In addition, Temple University Libraries will cover 50% of the the remaining cost.

National Academy of Sciences

Temple authors who publish in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences will get a discounted open access fee of $1100 (compared to $1450).

Nature Publishing

Temple authors who publish in the British Journal of Cancer are eligible for a reduced-rate BJC open fee.

Oxford University Press

Temple authors who publish in the Journal of Experimental Botany will have their APC waived.
