Publishers and journals offering discounts

The library also has agreements that give researchers at Karolinska Institutet discounts on the publishing fees they pay themselves.

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS): If you choose to publish your article open access with PNAS, you will pay $2000 instead of $2500. You will have to inform PNAS that you are a KI researcher to get the discount. Here you will find more information on PNAS and open access.

SAGE: SAGE offers a 20 % discount on the publishing charge in their fully open access journals. When you as a corresponding author get your article accepted in any of the fully OA journals you use SOAP (SAGE Open Access Portal) and the APC will be discounted automatically.
