Faculty & Researcher Help: OA Fee Discounts and Library Support

OA Fee Discounts and Library Support

The University of Manitoba Libraries does not provide funding to University of Manitoba authors for Article Processing Charges (APCs), nor does it provide funding to authors for any author costs associated with publication. 

In April 2015, the Libraries discontinued its Open Access Authors Fund and has no plans nor any mechanism to reinstate this fund.

Important note: Some publishers will waive article processing charges while other publishers offer discounts.  

Examples of fee waiver programs are listed below:

*Some fee discounts are automatically applied when you submit your manuscript from a University of Manitoba IP address. Other publishers will require you to enter an institution specific open access code. If you have questions about this process, please contact your Librarian
