Library to Cover All Publishing Fees for PLOS Journals

February 24, 2021 - 2:58pm by Lindsay Barnett

Yale University Library has entered into 2 unique membership agreements with PLOS, an open access publisher of high quality journals in science and medicine. These 3-year commitments will waive article processing charges (APCs) for Yale-affiliated authors publishing in PLOS journals!

This includes all existing PLOS titles: PLOS Biology, PLOS Medicine, PLOS One, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Pathogens, PLOS Genetics, and PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, as well as any new PLOS publications launched during the contract term.  

Last year Yale authors published more than 100 articles in PLOS journals, with APCs of up to $3,000 per article. Effective Jan. 1, 2021, these author-paid APCs will be eliminated and replaced with annual fees paid by the library. The authors will maintain copyright ownership of their research.  Read more
