Open Access Agreements and Memberships

Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) Overview

CMU's institutional membership to Nucleic Acids Research (NAR) entitles affiliated authors to receive a 50% discount on the APC. NAR is a fully open access journal, and all articles are published in the journal under an open access license immediately upon publication.

*Articles in Open Access journals without a CMU corresponding author can still be made OA using the Libraries' APC fund to pay some of the OA publishing fees. See CMU’s APC webpage for more information and to apply for APC funds.

See full list of journals supported through CMU's Open Access publisher agreements and memberships.


If you are unsure whether your article or journal is covered under this CMU publisher agreements, or with other questions, please contact the University Libraries Data and Publishing Services team.
