Imperial College, London is the latest university to join the AIMs program, meaning affiliated authors can publishing OA without paying an APC
We are pleased to announce that Imperial College, London – 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. By taking out an Annual Institutional Membership (AIM), Imperial faculty, staff and students can now access open access publishing in any PeerJ journals without having to pay an APC. Imperial has chosen the manual approval option for AIMs, so affiliated authors need to make an application to verify their eligibility to publish using the membership by completing this form. An application should be made for each new submission, and will be reviewed by the team at Imperial College London.
Imperial College London is committed to disseminating its research and scholarship as widely as possible. In line with this it supports the principle that ‘the results of research that have been publicly funded should be freely accessible in the public domain’ and therefore it encourages all its academic and research staff and students to make their research available through open access (OA).
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.
Institutions who are interested in AIMs should contact PeerJ.
