In order to provide institutions with the most innovative research for a fraction of the list price, IGI Global offers Open Access (OA) Fee Waiver Initiative for our InfoSci-Books and InfoSci®-Journals databases. When an institution invests in IGI Global’s InfoSci-Books and/or InfoSci-Journals (185+ scholarly journals) database, they can take advantage of IGI Global’s OA Fee Waiver Initiative to provide their institution with an additional source of OA article processing charges (APCs) funding.

    IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA APCs for their faculty at that institution when their work is accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.***
