UC Berkeley has a strong interest in exploring and supporting a variety of open access projects. The UCB Library believes that open access publishing moves science forward and increases impact.

UC Berkeley is taking part in a pilot of 3 Year PeerJ Memberships. UC Berkeley will fund a 3 Year Membership in its entirety, which means that there will be no out-of-pocket fees for you to publish in PeerJ journals. During the 3 Year Membership, you can publish 3 articles with PeerJ. The only requirement is that all co-authors on a paper have a valid PeerJ membership.

We recommend that you check that you are eligible for a Membership by contacting the Office of Scholarly Communication Services at schol-comm@berkeley.edu for more details.

When your article is accepted, we will normally recognize your institutional email address and automatically process payment via the fund. But if we don’t, please let our team know that you have approval from your Fund Manager and we will get in contact with them directly.

We trust this membership will encourage Berkeley authors to make their scholarship open and accessible. If you have questions regarding our support of PeerJ, or other open access initiatives supported by the Berkeley Libraries, please contact the Office of Scholarly Communication Services at schol-comm@berkeley.edu.

All authors of an accepted article must have a paid membership.
