Open Access Publishing Support

A guide to OA publishing options


Through the IU Libraries supporting membership with these Springer Open and BioMedCentral, all Indiana University-Bloomington affiliates now qualify for a 15% discount on article processing charges for any of their journals. SpringerOpen and BioMed Central are both open access publishing platforms that are a part of Springer Nature, a leading global academic and educational publisher. Charges vary by journal and are agreed upon as part of the manuscript submission process, so don't forget to take advantage of IUB's supporting membership discount.
