We are delighted to announce that the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (Universitätsklinikum Hamburg-Eppendorf / UKE) has established an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

The University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of this support, the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf has entered an institutional agreement with Frontiers. Under the terms of this agreement, eligible authors from the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process.

Eligible authors will benefit from a streamlined invoicing process, managed directly between Frontiers and the Open Access team at the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. Furthermore, the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf will benefit from a discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles covered by this agreement.
