Providing access to research and increasing the reach and impact of scholarship are essential to the mission of libraries and PeerJ, an Open Access (OA) publisher, is well positioned to help accomplish this mission.
The Coates Library is pleased to support its research community by paying for the one-time cost of basic membership in PeerJ.
When a manuscript is accepted for publication in PeerJ, the Coates Library will pay the cost of a Basic Membership for each Trinity affiliated author. The membership to PeerJ is yours for life, even if you leave Trinity. When every author on a manuscript (including non-Trinity affiliated authors) has a Basic Membership then the publication charges for one article a year by those authors are covered.

We trust this membership will encourage Trinity authors to make their scholarship open and freely accessible. If you have questions regarding our support of PeerJ, or other Open Access initiatives supported by Coates Library, please contact Chris Nolan.
