Western Sydney University forms publishing agreement with Frontiers

Funds fully committed. As of May 2023, Open Access funds for Western Sydney University researchers are fully committed, unless confirmed by the university librarians. For questions, please contact the university library team at Lib-Research@westernsydney.edu.au

Western Sydney University has formed an institutional membership agreement for open access publishing with Frontiers.  


This institutional agreement means that Western Sydney University researchers may publish in Frontiers journals at reduced or no cost to them and with a simplified process. All publications must meet the eligibility criteria and are subject to availability of funds. 

Western Sydney University supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. This agreement will further encourage Western Sydney 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 institutions@frontiersin.org to discuss the possibilities for your own organization.

If you are a Western Sydney University researcher, please select Western Sydney University in the payment information section (“Frontiers institutional members”) when submitting your article.
