APC discounts

Discounted Article Processing Charges (APCs) are available for some publishers. The following discounts are available to University of Exeter researchers through institutional membership or offset agreements.

Offset agreements apply where library subscriptions to the publisher’s journals are currently in place. These are nationally negotiated as part of the subscription deal and are intended to contain the total cost of publication by helping ensure that institutions do not pay publishers twice for the same item.
