Effective August 1, 2023, the University of California (UC) and the open access publisher Frontiers announced a one-year pilot agreement that provides financial support to UC corresponding authors who publish open access in one of twenty selected Frontiers journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sustainability. Authors at all ten UC campuses and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) are eligible for this support under the pilot.
The UC libraries will cover open access publishing fees, also known as article processing charges (APCs), in full for UC corresponding authors who publish in the 20 journals included in the pilot. This agreement has two goals: (1) to support UC’s mission as a public university by making more UC-authored publications open to the world, and (2) to make the author choice to publish with a fully open access publisher an affordable option.
