Traditional scholarly publishers often charge authors an Article Processing Charge (APC) to convert an article to Open Access.
APC costs can be included in grant-funding applications if authors know that they will be seeking publication in a journal that uses this model. NSERC, SSHRC, and CIHR will consider APC costs in grant applications.
Library consortia have negotiated APC discounts with some publishers as a component of our subscription contracts.
To confirm discount eligibility for a specific title, please contact the library.
