All CMU faculty, staff, and students who are corresponding “lead” authors on articles published in PLOS journals are able to publish them open access without paying an article processing fee (APC)
*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.
