University of Barcelona funding for Open Access publishing


This year the Vice-rectorate for Ph.D. and Research Promotion makes available to the community of the University of Barcelona a new call for grants to publish in open access scientific journals, framed in the policy for supporting the free dissemination of knowledge. The budget for this call is 85.000 euros.


MDPI maintains discount to publish in its journals

In 2019, MDPI (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute) is once again offering University of Barcelona researchers a discount of 25% on the standard fee they charge to publish accepted articles in any of their journals. This economic incentive is the result of a programme aimed at strengthening the link between the Swiss publishing group and prestigious research and higher education institutions such as the University of Barcelona. The discounts are an effective tool for increasing Open Access publication of university research results.
To request this discount, authors should identify themselves as University of Barcelona members when they deal with an MDPI journal to arrange for the publication of a research article. These special terms will remain in effect until 29 February 2020.
