IGI Global Provides Free Research Through the Open Access Model and the Free Content Program

By Sharlene Oong on Dec 19, 2018
As IGI Global continues to promote the dissemination of quality research, the academic publisher opens up one scholarly journal article for Open Access (OA) or reference book chapter for complimentary access, each month. These chapters and articles are included in some of the top-trending publications and include trending topics that will appeal to researchers and scholars across multiple disciplines.

Dedicated to ensuring that quality content is made available to the wider academic community, IGI Global is offering their new InfoSci®-Journals Open Access (OA) Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Program which provides researchers with alternative funding for APCs, and allows librarians to support a sustainable and quality OA movement, while providing resources their institution needs. Through IGI Global's InfoSci-Journals database, librarians and researchers can access emerging research for an affordable price, and participate in quality OA movement. To learn more about this program watch IGI Global’s 2018 Charleston Conference Neapolitan Panel Session, titled “Sustainable Open Access Approaches: Benefits for Researchers, Librarians, and Publishers,” and visit IGI Global’s InfoSci-Journals webpage.
