Open Access Publisher Memberships and Discount Schemes

The Library subscribes to a small number of open access (OA) memberships and pre-pay schemes that reduce the cost of article processing charges (APCs). These are listed below. Please email your relevant Academic Support Librarian if you have any questions about the schemes or are interested in seeing new schemes added to the list.

The rates for SAGE APCs are normally between £800 and £1,600, but because the Library subscribes to the SAGE Premier journal package, researchers at Bangor only pay £200 when publishing in SAGE Choice and SAGE Premier titles. Researchers should indicate that they are entitled to the discount by entering the code WHEEL2014 in the University/Institution Account Code field in the submission form. The discount can not be applied retrospectively.

The University is part of a national scheme which entitles researchers at Bangor to a discounted APC rate of £225. Researchers must indicate to Ubiquity Press that they are entitled to this discount on submission of their paper.
