The University of Nottingham has joined the Frontiers – JISC national open access deal.

We are delighted to announce that the University of Nottingham has joined the national open access deal agreed between Jisc Collections and Frontiers.  This landmark deal provides a simplified and streamlined route to open access publishing for researchers in the UK, who publish 7% of the world’s research.

The University of Nottingham supports its researchers in making their research more widely available.  As part of this deal, eligible authors may publish in any Frontiers journal with a simplified invoicing process and they will benefit from a 10% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APCs).

This agreement will further encourage the University of Nottingham authors to publish open access, increasing uptake of open access to the results of mostly publicly funded research, to the benefit of the scholarly community and the public at large, while reducing costs.

Information for authors:

To submit your article under this agreement, please select ‘University of Nottingham’ as the payer in the invoice section when submitting your article.  Frontiers will then verify your eligibility with the University of Nottingham and, if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the university upon acceptance. (Note: authors will need to follow internal university processes and identify a source of funding to cover the balance of the APC after the discount is applied).

For information on whether your article is eligible under this agreement, or if you require any further details, please visit the University of Nottingham APC discounts page or contact  

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