Atkins Library is pleased to announce that we have signed a contract with BioMed Central for a Supporter Membership for BMC’s Open Access publishing program and SpringerOpen titles. Beginning February 15th, submitting UNC Charlotte authors whose articles are accepted for publication in those journals will receive a 15% reduction in article processing charges (APCs).
This discount also applies to SpringerOpen titles published by Springer Verlag, which cover disciplines beyond biomedical areas, including: business, economics, engineering, manufacturing, astronomy, computer science and others. There are now 100 SpringerOpen journals and approximately 250 BioMed Central active titles. With a Supporter Membership, there is no limit to how many articles can benefit from this discount during the course of the year.
