Open Access Sponsorship
Support Free Knowledge
Open access publishing models do not charge users a subscription fee. Anyone with a computer or a mobile device and an internet connection can access academic work. Open access sponsorship would allow us to reduce or, in some instances, completely remove the Open Access Publication Fee.
You can sponsor either via a blind trust, which will give us the authority to decide which publications the funds are allocated towards or by sponsoring authors within your institution.
Please note that sponsorship of any kind does not grant institutions the power to control which submissions get accepted. It also does not grant the permission to interfere with the peer review or editorial processes.
Why Sponsor as an Institution
An increasing number of academic institutions use open access models to publish high-quality peer-reviewed academic work. This type of support makes a difference. You are proactively pushing your fields of study into the future by allowing significantly more people to access the knowledge. You can make a real impact on a global scale.
