Research Publishing & Impact: Other publishing discounts

Publisher discounts

In addition to the current 2023 Read & Publish Agreements, Otago is also eligible for the following discounts on APCs. View the 2023 Otago titles list by publisher for specific titles.

  • 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 10% 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.  For 2023, the RSC is offering a 15% discount on APCs for hybrid journals only, which will be automatically applied to the APC upon article acceptance, where the corresponding author uses their Otago email address. 

  • SAGE are offering a 20% discount on some journal titles that are listed outside the Read and Publish Agreement. View the 2023 Otago titles list by SAGE, for specific titles.

  • Taylor & Francis are offering authors a 10% discount on articles accepted for non-eligible hybrid journal titles.
