Arizona State University joins PeerJ AIMs Program, providing unlimited publishing for their faculty with no APCs
We are delighted to announce our latest institutional Member – Arizona State University. By taking out an Annual Institutional Membership (AIM), ASU faculty can now access unlimited open access publishing in any PeerJ journals without having to worry about paying an APC. Any corresponding or admin/submitting author who submits to PeerJ with an ASU email will be eligible to use the membership; any faculty, staff or student member of the University with a different email address should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and submit a request to use ASU’s Annual Institutional Membership.
We are delighted that ASU – a long-term partner of PeerJ – has renewed their support for PeerJ by joining the AIMs program. It’s great to have them on board as our latest member.
A 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.
