Publisher Discounts & Deals

Introduction

As a result of library subscriptions and other deals mainly supported by the national consortium CRUI-CARE, authors affiliated to the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano can receive a discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for immediate open access publication of articles. In some cases publication costs are already covered by the subscription itself, while in other cases authors (or unibz in case costs are centrally funded) are granted a discount.

In the case of costs covered by national subscriptions where the number of annual articles is exhausted, authors will be notified by the publisher and can then choose whether or not to publish in open access and if so choose another kind of funding: the unibz open access publishing fund or other tools.
