Open Access Publishing: APC discounts through VIVA

Deals with Publishers

VIVA has negotiated deals with several publishers to include Article Publication Charges (APCs) as part of the subscription cost, meaning publishing in their respective Open Access journals is free to you.

Additional Sources of Funding for APCs

  • Funding agency supporting your project: Check with your funding agency to see if grant funds can be used to support article processing charges. Some include the NIH, NSF, Gates Foundation, and Wellcome.
  • Check with your department or University administration to see if funds are available.
  • Co-authors' institutions: Ask your co-authors to investigate sources of funding from their institutions - start with the library if unsure who to ask.
  • The journal or publisher: In some cases, there may be waivers or reduced fees for authors who simply cannot afford to pay the APC.
