The University of Sussex joins PeerJ’s Institutional Membership program, giving their faculty unlimited, fee-free publishing
We are delighted to welcome the University of Sussex to the AIMs program, meaning Sussex authors can enjoy unlimited, APC-free Open Access publishing in any PeerJ journal. Any corresponding or admin/submitting author who submits to PeerJ with a valid University of Sussex email will be automatically eligible to use the membership; any faculty, staff or student member of the University with a different email address should contact email@example.com and submit a request to use Sussex’s Annual Institutional Membership.
Sussex authors can find our more on their PeerJ page, or by watching the video below.
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.
