The University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of this support, UNC Libraries are piloting an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers. Under the terms of the agreement, eligible authors from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to the author.
This agreement will further encourage University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 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.
