This institutional agreement means that researchers affiliated with the University of Münster may publish in any Frontiers journal at no cost to them and with a simplified process. The university also benefits from a 10% membership discount.
The university library supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage them 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.
