Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research forms publishing agreement with Frontiers 

Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL) has formed an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

This institutional agreement means that WSL researchers may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process. 

Lib4RI supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage WSL 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.
