Open Access Publishing Discounts
The UC and UC San Diego Library negotiate licenses with publishers to offer discounts--and in some cases, full waivers--on the article processing charges so that our authors can benefit from publishing open access.
UC Publisher OA Agreements and Discounts
The University of California has transformative open access publishing agreements and publishing discounts in place with a broad range of scholarly publishers, including several of the world’s largest commercial journal publishers, as well as society, not-for-profit, and fully open access publishers. These agreements and discounts are in place to make it easier and more affordable for UC authors to publish open access by reducing the amount that authors are responsible for paying when publishing open.
