Posted On: Friday, February 25, 2022 - 22:26 by Lesley Skalla

Authors who want to publish an article in an open access journal or publish in a standard subscription journal as an open access article, typically need to pay an "article processing charge" (APC) in order to cover the cost of publishing by the publisher.

Posted On: Saturday, February 5, 2022 - 09:40 by Megan von Isenburg

There are several changes to Duke's journal subscriptions for 2022. Library staff across Duke have been working together to renegotiate large "Big Deal" packages with publishers Elsevier, Springer, and Wiley that were up for regular renewal, with an eye toward containing excessive annual increases for journal prices.
