The University of Ottawa / Université d’Ottawa becomes our latest Institutional Member, providing unlimited publishing for their faculty with no APCs.

PeerJ is delighted to welcome University of Ottawa / Université d’Ottawa as a new Institutional member. By taking out an Annual Institutional Membership (AIM), uOttawa students, staff and  faculty can enjoy unlimited publishing for the next 12 months in any PeerJ journal. Any corresponding or admin/submitting author who submits to PeerJ with a university email address will be recognized as eligible to use the membership; any faculty, staff or student member of the University with a different email address should contact and submit a request to use uOttawa’s  Annual Institutional Membership.

We are thankful for uOttawa’s continued support of Open Access and eagerness to convert their existing partnership with us to the new Institutional Model, which will simplify Open Access for their users. The University continues to demonstrate its strong commitment to making research open access, believing that broad dissemination of knowledge and research without access barriers is a great benefit to society as a whole.

About AIMs

PeerJ Annual Institutional Membership (AIM) provides unlimited, frictionless OA publishing for institutional partners and their faculty. Simple to manage, easy to purchase and providing great cost saving opportunities, researchers will never have to worry about having to pay an APC, and librarians can say goodbye to the administrative overhead of dealing with payments on an article by article basis.

AIMs pricing is tiered and based on an institution’s publishing history in PeerJ’s journal portfolio. When a partner’s renewal is calculated, if the equivalent APC cost would have been less than the Membership fee, they can choose to carry over the difference towards their Membership renewal, or contribute to PeerJ’s Global Publishing Fund, which supports authors without the means to publish OA. AIMs simplify OA and are an important step towards a non-APC future of globally equitable access to read and publish open science.

Institutions who are interested in AIMs should contact PeerJ.
