With Massive Library Budget Cuts Looming, “Read & Publish” Models Offer a Sustainable Option for OA Funding and Research Acquisition.
IGI Global’s Open Access Fee Waiver [Read & Publish] Initiative provides an ideal option for institutions that are facing inevitable budget cuts from the COVID-19 pandemic fallout. Through this transformative open access (OA) model, when an institution invests in one of IGI Global’s InfoSci-Databases (including InfoSci-Books, InfoSci-Journals, InfoSci-Knowledge Solutions), we will waive the OA APC for their faculty and staff when their work is submitted and accepted (following peer review) into an IGI Global journal. Unlike many other publishers who are offering discounts on OA, we are offering 100% OA APC waivers to provide a sustainable source of open access funding and peer-reviewed content without double-dipping into library budgets. Be sure to share this information with your customers while they prepare for next year’s budget.
