The researchers at the University of Helsinki get a 87,5% discount from the APC payment when they publish their articles openly in SAGE journals (Sage Choice Titles) as a corresponding author. The normal APC payment would be 1600 GBP, but due to library’s Open Access-membership the author is left only with the APC-payment of 200 GBP.
Instructions for Open Access publishing in SAGE´s journals:
1. SAGE sends to a corresponding author the acceptance of the article and informs author about the possibility to publish the article Open Access.
2. The writer fills in the SAGE’s Open Access form and uses the Promo Code: “FinELib 2017“.
3. SAGE bills the 200 GBP APC payment from the corresponding writer.
When the article has been accepted the writers themselves have to add the information code: FinELib2017, which entitles to the discount. Researchers also have to make sure that the billing is performed correctly with the discounted APC payment.
The researchers / article authors of the University of Helsinki have the possibility to publish articles open access in Taylor& Francis (incl. Routledge) free of charge. The possibility for this starts in 2017 and covers articles published in 2017 and onwards.
The normal APC fee would be 2150 euro, but due to library’s OA-membership agreement the library is left with the discounted APC-payment of 860 euro.
Instructions on how to publish open access articles in T&F journals:
T&F sends the corresponding author a message about the acceptance of the article and informs author about the possibility to publish the article open access.
The library sends a confirmation to T&F about the discounted APC-payment, after which the corresponding author can confirm the open access CC-license chosen in the T&F publishing system. If you don´t choose any license, CC-BY will automatically appear as default.
