Syracuse University Libraries negotiated several agreements with publishers to cover the costs of open access publishing (often called APCs) for SU-affiliated scholars. At the moment, there are agreements in place with the following:
To take advantage of these agreements and to make your work open access and without charge to you as an author, please see our detailed list of transformative agreements.
In addition to these agreements, SU authors are eligible for APC discounts with the following:
|Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI)||SU Authors are eligible for a 10% discount on article processing charges for MDPI Journals. Details on MDPI APCs can be found at this link: https://www.mdpi.com/apc.|

Please be sure to use your syr.edu email address and select Syracuse University as your affiliation during this process.
