Pays APC

Since 2008, the CSIC through its network of libraries is committed to making institutional research results open access. This commitment follows two main lines of action: the green path via its institutional repository DIGITAL.CSIC, and the implementation of a Support Programme for fully open access initiatives. We believe that open access publishing moves science forward and increases impact.

Keeping this goal in mind the ‘CSIC Library and Archives Network’ has made a pre-payment with PeerJ. It can be used by corresponding authors affiliated with CSIC to cover the APC in any of the PeerJ journals, once the paper has been accepted for publication.

Submit your article using your institutional email address to ensure your institutional affiliation is recognized. After acceptance, each eligible CSIC corresponding author can apply for CSIC´s funds by filling out the open access fund application form and return to this page to submit a claim for an APC and complete the email verification.

This open access fund application form generates a request that is validated for the ‘CSIC Library and Archives Network’. All funded papers must include an acknowledgement of the grant that supported the research
