St Andrews open access membership with Royal Society

We are happy to announce that the University of St Andrews Library has arranged for Open Access Membership with Royal Society Publishing. This means that if you are a researcher at St Andrews and have an article accepted for publication in any of the Royal Society’s journals, you will qualify for a 25% discount on article processing charges if you choose ‘Open Choice’.

With Open Choice you can benefit from enhanced visibility for your article and the potential for increased citation, in addition to the recognised high quality of Royal Society journals. You will retain 100% copyright, with immediate open access under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence (CC BY 3.0) licence. Open access articles by St Andrews authors will be highlighted on a dedicated page on the Royal Society Publishing website.

This new membership is part of the Library’s varied activities that support open access to research, and followed consultation with a number of our researchers who already publish in Royal Society journals. Other activities include advice on compliance with funders’ open access mandates and help with depositing full text in our repository Research@StAndrews:FullText via PURE

Further information for St Andrews researchers is available from Jackie Proven in the University Library
