Research Publishing & Impact: Other publishing discounts

Publisher discounts

In addition to the current 2022 Read & Publish Agreements, Otago is also eligible for the following discounts on APCs.

  • Elsevier: Open Access Hybrid Publishing Discount: Corresponding authors are granted the right, as part of an open access pilot, to publish an unlimited number of open access articles in the Elsevier owned and Elsevier published core hybrid journals at a discount of 12.5% on the article publishing charges (APCs”).

CAUL (Council of Australian University Librarians) are handling the approval (i.e. to qualify for the discount) so there is nothing that Otago /you as the corresponding author has to do. Using your institutional email address when submitting is important to identify you as from Otago.

  • Royal Society of Chemistry Gold subscribers.  For 2022, the RSC is offering a 15% discount on APCs for all journals.
