The Library is participating in a number of Read & Publish agreements that allow Flinders researchers to publish Open Access with no Article Processing Charges (APCs).
View the list of publishers with Free and Discounted APCs on offer and check to see if your upcoming journal submission will be covered!
To be eligible for most deals, submit your article using your Flinders email address. You must be the corresponding author and include an affiliation/ byline to Flinders University.
Several of our Read & Publish agreements have publisher-imposed caps on the number of articles that are published in a calendar year. The capped limits are shared across all participating institutions within the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) consortium. Publishing earlier in the year will optimised chances of free APC availability.
Please note that all agreements are slightly different and may not cover all journals issued by a participating publisher, and additional charges (such as page charges) may still apply. Specific information about the criteria for each publisher and cap limits can be viewed on the Read & Publish webpage, or submit a Library research query via Service One.
