Robert Koch Institute forms publishing agreement with Frontiers

Robert Koch Institute has formed an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

This institutional agreement means that eligible Robert Koch Institute researchers may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process. Articles may benefit from a 5% membership discount.

Robert Koch Institute supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage Robert Koch Institute 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 institutions@frontiersin.org to discuss the possibilities for your own organization. 

Information for researchers 

If you are a Robert Koch Institute researcher, please select Robert Koch Institute in the payment information section (“Frontiers institutional members”) when submitting your article. Frontiers will verify your eligibility with the library and, if confirmed, the APC will be paid by Robert Koch Institute upon acceptance.  

For information on whether your article is eligible under this agreement, or if you require any further details, please contact bibliothek@rki.de.
