IGI Global’s Open Access (Read and Publish) Fee Waiver

For any library that invests in an IGI Global's InfoSci®-Databases, including InfoSci®-Books and InfoSci®-Journals, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the open access article processing charges (APCs) for their patrons.

How Does it Work?

  1. When a library invests in IGI Global’s InfoSci®-Databases, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA APCs for their patrons.
  2. When a student, faculty, or staff member’s paper is submitted and accepted (following peer review) into an IGI Global journals, the author will have the option to have their paper published under a traditional publishing model or as OA.
  3. When the author chooses to have their paper published under OA, IGI Global will notify them of the OA Fee Waiver Initiative. If the author decides they would like to take advantage of this initiative, IGI Global will deduct the US$ 1,500 APC from the created fund.
