TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The offer of 2 APCs for each contract year (2019-21) for authors of b-on institutions was negotiated in 153 titles of this publisher.
- HOW IT WORKS
The use of the 2 free APCs per year offered by the publisher will be based on the principle “first come, first served”.
The author submits the article for publication. Upon acceptance, the author will be required to sign a copyright license and pay the APC. It is at this stage of the process that the author can choose to use the institutional funds, “deposit account” affects the b-on, to pay the APC.
If the author chooses to use the funds of the “deposit account”, the FCT will be informed that the author, belonging to one of the institutions present in the b-on, will use one of the available APC.
