Press Release - With the addition of Stanford, 20 universities have now
entered into an Institutional Arrangement with PeerJ
San Francisco, 11th February 2014 - PeerJ (the award winning open access
publisher of both PeerJ PrePrints and PeerJ) is pleased to announce that with
the addition of Stanford University, twenty universities have now signed up to
provide PeerJ Publication Plans to their faculty. Authors from these
institutions will have their publication plans automatically paid for them,
using funds centrally provided by their library.
In addition to these 20 universities, numerous others have committed to
supporting Open Access charges in some form, and many of them also have public
pages on PeerJ.
Peter Binfield, Co-Founder of PeerJ said that "as we approach the one year
anniversary of having published our first articles, a milestone which we
celebrate tomorrow, it is a great sign that so many world class institutions
appreciate the PeerJ model to the extent that they have chosen to support
their researchers in this way".
For the price of just one year of access to just one subscription journal (or
a single open access publication fee at many other publishers) universities
can fund the lifetime publication plans for a large number of their faculty.
The current universities with a PeerJ arrangement are:
Arizona State University
Carnegie Mellon University
Colorado State University
Oregon State University
Texas A&M University
University College London
University of Arizona
University of Birmingham
University of California Berkeley
University of Cambridge
University of Glasgow
University of Manitoba
University of New Mexico
University of Newfoundland
More information, including Case Studies from several of these institutions
can be found at https://peerj.com/edu. Any university which is interested in a
similar arrangement can email PeerJ at: [log in to unmask]
PeerJ is an Open Access publisher of peer reviewed articles, which offers
researchers a lifetime membership, for a single low price, giving them the
ability to openly publish all future articles for free. PeerJ is based in San
Francisco, CA and London, UK and can be accessed at https://peerj.com/.
