IGI Global’s Open Access (OA) Fee Waiver (Read and Publish) InitiativeFor any library that invests in IGI Global's InfoSci-Books and/or InfoSci-Journals databases, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA article processing charges (APCs) for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.*

For more information, watch IGI Global's 2018 Charleston Conference Neapolitan Panel Session,
"Sustainable Open Access Approaches: Benefits for Researchers, Librarians, and Publishers"

*The fund will be offered on an annual basis and expire at the end of the subscription period. The fund would renew as the subscription is renewed for each year thereafter. The open access fees will be waived after the student, faculty, or staff’s paper has been vetted/accepted into an IGI Global journal as requested by the author(s) of the paper. Libraries in developing countries will have the match on their investment doubled.
