Many funders will allow you to use research grants to pay open access APCs for books and journals. See our guide on funder open access policiesto see whether your funder could cover your charges.
Open access publishing agreements
We’re partnering with groups of institutions around the world to help researchers publish gold OA in their chosen journals. These transformative and consortia agreements can benefit authors through reduced APCs, or allow them publish OA at no cost to themselves.
