Colorado State University forms open access publishing agreement with Frontiers 

UPDATE Feb 2023: Due to overwhelming demand, Colorado State University is no longer accepting funding requests at this time. CSU is exploring the feasibility of future opportunities to support researchers with article processing charges for Frontiers publications. For questions, please contact Khaleedah Thomas at

Colorado State University supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of this support, Colorado State University Libraries has entered an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

This institutional agreement means that eligible Colorado State University researchers may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them. Articles may benefit from a 7.5% membership discount.

To be eligible, a publication’s corresponding author must be affiliated with Colorado State University.

Eligible authors will benefit from a simplified invoicing process, managed directly between Frontiers and the Libraries, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. 

This agreement will further encourage Colorado State University 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. 

Information for authors:

To submit your article under this agreement please select Colorado State University in the payment information section (“Frontiers institutional members”). Frontiers will verify your eligibility with Colorado State University Libraries and, if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the Libraries upon acceptance.  

For information on whether your article is eligible under this agreement, or if you require any further details, please visit Colorado State University Open Access Publishing for Researchers or contact Khaleedah Thomas at
