PeerJ, an Open Access, peer-reviewed, scholarly journal which publishes Research Articles in the Biological Sciences, Medical Sciences, and Health Sciences
SAGE, the SAGE Choice publishing programme enables you to publish your article Open Access in any SAGE journal
These funds are to support open access publishing by researchers at the University of Hull. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The University Library will enage with authors who publish using these funds in order to survey their experiences.
To publish in PeerJ, submit an application in the usual way.
To publish in SAGE, please email email@example.com and you will be issued with a payment code.
The University of Hull has agreements with publishers to offset the payment of APCs. If you are looking to publish with the publishers below, you may be able to take advantage of these agreements to make your article gold open access. Follow the links to find more information.
Choosing a publisher can be tricky, especially if the journal is one you've not heard of before. Information on how to spot a 'predatory' publisher can be found in this article by Miggie Pickton of the University of Northampton.
To help researchers, PLOS has collated a partial list of institutions and funders from around the world who have Open Access funds or policies to allow researchers to expense publication fees directly from their grant.
Beware of predatory publishers who "lie about their business practices for the purpose of attracting paying authors".
Here are some example OA pages from publishers:
Oxford University Press - http://www.oxfordjournals.org/en/oxford-open/index.html
University of Central London - https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ucl-press/open-access
These are not recommendations, other publishers are available.
