Author Fees, Dalhousie Memberships and Negotiated Discounts
Open Access has provided great benefits to readers by making scholarly content freely available without the barrier of subscription fees. However authors who choose to publish in Gold Open Access journals must anticipate an Author Processing Charge (APC) that is levied by the journal publisher to cover publishing costs.
When possible, authors should include these APCs in their grant application if the journal they prefer to publish in is using this model. CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC all provide grant funds to cover APCs.
Dalhousie does not have an author fund to directly cover the cost associated with Author Processing Charges (APCs)
The following Dalhousie memberships and discounts are currently available. Never assume that a discount will be automatically applied. Always check with the publisher to confirm the discount.
