Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine Library has formed an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.

To qualify for funding to cover some or all of the publishing costs, affiliated corresponding authors are required to contact the Medical Library to obtain a PO number to be preapproved prior to submitting their manuscript to any Frontiers journal. Articles may also benefit from a 2.5% membership discount.

The Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine library supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine 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.
