Open access agreements: are you eligible for OA publishing support?

We’re partnering with institutions and funders around the world to help researchers publish gold open access in their chosen journals. These agreements can mean that individual authors benefit from much reduced article publishing charges (APCs) or that they are able to publish open access at no cost to themselves. Find out below if you’re eligible for this open access support.
