The library of the Queen’s University Belfast may cover article-processing charges (APCs) for eligible authors affiliated with the University.

Under this agreement affiliated eligible authors publishing in any of the (currently 60) Frontiers journals receive a 5% discount on the APC paid for by the library. This discount is applied to the net APC, i.e. the APC, which would otherwise be payable after deduction of any other discounts that may apply.

Eligible authors are affiliated corresponding authors of articles funded by:

  • COAF (Arthritis Research UK, Bloodwise, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and Wellcome Trust)
  • UKRI/formerly Research Councils UK (AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC, MRC, NERC, STFC)

To submit your article under this institutional agreement, please select ‘Queen’s University Belfast’ as the institutional payer in the invoice section of the article submission process. Frontiers will then verify your affiliation and eligibility with the QUB Library.

For information on whether you qualify for funding, please visit the Queen’s University Belfast library’s webpage on open access, or contact the Open Access team at openaccess@qub.ac.uk.
