Frontiers and Qatar National Library form Open Access publishing agreement

LOGO 2 2

Qatar National Library (QNL) has formed an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers. 

This institutional agreement means that eligible researchers may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process. Articles may benefit from a 10% membership discount. 

The Qatar National Library supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage QNL researchers to publish open access, increasing the volume of research openly available. While this reduces costs for the researcher, it also benefits the wider research community and the public at large.   

For more information on Frontiers’ institutional agreements please visit our institutional memberships page or contact to discuss the possibilities for your own organization.
