In order to encourage open access publishing at the University of California, the California Digital Library administers publishing discounts with a number of full OA and hybrid-OA journals. These publishers and journals offer a discount to UC authors who are paying Article Processing Charges (APCs) to make their articles openly available. Some of these discounts are obtained through paid memberships, some are negotiated into institutional licenses with the publisher, and some are offered by the publisher in exchange for subscriptions

Publishers with journals covered by these discounts:

  • American Association for the Advancement of Science
  • American Chemical Society
  • BioMed Central
  • Electrochemical Society
  • Karger
  • National Academy of Sciences
  • Oxford University Press
  • Springer Nature
  • Taylor & Francis
