Windsor Open Access Author Fee Portal

Charging authors a publication fee is one common way that open access journals support their operations. In some cases the Leddy library can help to offset these cost of these fees as a result of various content licenses we have with these publishers. This page provides information for you on where such discounts apply and how to obtain them. You can find additional information from the CRKN page of negotiated APC Discounts.  If you have any questions please contact your liaison or scholarship@uwindsor.ca.
