Waives a limited number of OA publication fees for research articles accepted to fully open access journals or hybrid journals. Corresponding author must be from UIC, and they should use their institutional email address and affiliation when submitting the article. If an article is accepted, the author will receive an email to opt into open acces, and then an email to set up an account with RightsLink, where they should select the option to seek funding from their institution. The RightsLink email may say you need to set up a payment, but you are really opting in to the OA program, and "payment" will be $0. Cambridge will follow up after publication to provide a second opportunity to opt into the program. See the Cambridge walk through information for author.
Wiley (Full Waiver)
UIC authors are eligible for a full waiver of APC publication fees. Corresponding author must be from UIC, and they should use their institutional email address and affiliation when submitting the article. Corresponding authors for hybrid articles should choose the open access option when prompted during the completion of their author agreement. Corresponding authors for gold journals must select the option to indicate their APC is covered by an agreement, and select UIC as the institution, during the submission process. Unlike hybrid journals, the system at this time does not notify you of your eligibility so you must be proactive. See a list of eligible Wiley hybrid journals and the APC rate for each. If prompted, find Wiley Open Access Account Code.
IEEE (Full Waiver)
UIC authors are eligible for a full waiver of the APC publication fees (there is an annual limit on the number of waivers). UIC authors with an accepted article should choose the "Open Access" option when asked by IEEE, which will then be routed for approval of the waiver. IEEE publishes nearly 200 journals in engineering and technology - this applies to 160 hybrid and 28 full open access journals.
IOP Publishing (Full Waiver)
Corresponding author must be from UIC, and they should use their institutional email address and affiliation when submitting the article.
BMJ Case Reports (Fellowship Fee)
We have an institutional membership which will cover the individual membership fee to become a fellow. During your 12 month Fellowship period you can submit as many cases as you like, access all the published material, and re-use any published material for personal use and teaching without further permission. This does not cover open access charges. That is a separate optional fee not covered by this membership.
