Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology forms publishing agreement with Frontiers 

Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) has formed an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

This institutional agreement means that eligible EMPA 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 library EMPA supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage EMPA 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 EMPA researcher, please select Empa – Swiss Federal Laboratories For Materials Science And Technology 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 EMPA upon acceptance.
