  1. APCs are covered for many other publishers, too. Why does University of Helsinki advertise one particular company here?

    1. Helsinki University Library has listed in APC guide ( all the publishers or publications were the researchers of the UH may receive a discount to the APC. The HULib agreement with Elsevier as part of FinELib consortium was just released and therefore the instructions to the corresponding Authors of the UH were also informed about the new agreement and benefits.

  2. i’d like to publish my paper through an international journal with high impact factor with free charges, but i don’t know how?
