APCs Waived for Open Access Cambridge Journals

Learning About Scholarly Communications – 5 Minutes at a Time!As an upgrade to our existing journals subscription, GW affiliates are now able to waive Article Processing Charges (APCs) when publishing in certain Cambridge Journals that are “Hybrid” or “Gold” Open Access. Himmelfarb Library, in partnership with Gelman Library (GW Libraries and Academic Innovation) and Burns Law Library, has entered a new “transformative” agreement with Cambridge University Press.

This agreement allows GW authors to publish their research as open access at no cost to authors. Nearly 50 health sciences journals are included in this agreement.

See which journals are covered here.

•   Select “United States” in the Country/Territory box.
•   Then select “George Washington University” from the Institution drop-down menu to view the list.

To be eligible, articles must:

•   Have a corresponding author affiliated with GW.
•   Be original research: Eligible article types include research articles, review articles, rapid communications, brief reports and case reports.
•   Be accepted for publication in a Cambridge University Press journal covered by this agreement.
•   Be accepted for publication after January 1, 2022.

More details about how to take advantage of this opportunity are available on Himmelfarb’s blog.
