The University of Kansas becomes our latest Institutional Member, providing unlimited publishing for their faculty with no APCs.
We are thrilled to welcome the University of Kansas to the AIMs program – thanks to their institutional membership, KU students, staff and faculty do not need to worry about paying APCs to publish in any PeerJ journal for the next 12 months. Any corresponding or submitting author who submits to PeerJ with a University of Kansas 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and submit a request to use KU’s Annual Institutional Membership.
We are grateful for the continued support of Open Access demonstrated by KU, and their eagerness to remove barriers to Open Access by simplifying the decision for their users to choose OA. KU was the first public institution to adopt an Open Access policy in the US, and continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to making research open.
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.
