Tools for Authors: Subsidized OA Fees for WU Authors

This libguide provides guidance for authors in support of their scholarship efforts.

Journals that Offer Discount on Author Publication Fees

The Washington University Open Access Resolution, passed in 2011, encourages faculty to publish their research in open access journals. Publishing in open access journals usually requires an article processing fee to offset the cost of publication. To help support authors who publish in open access journals, Washington University Libraries and Becker Medical Library have opted for membership status as part of journal subscriptions to open access publishers and select journal titles which allows faculty a discount on article processing fees.

Please contact Cathy Sarli if you need assistance with locating Open Access journals for your field of study. Another option is to use Ask Jane which  provides a listing of journals based on the keywords noted in the title and abstract of a manuscript. Use the filter results by Open Access journal option to limit results to Open Access Journals only.
