Open Science & Research Services: NTU APC Support

NTU APC SUPPORT  

In addition to enabling authors to make their publications open access through the institutional open access repository DR-NTU (green open access), the Library is partnering with various publishers to support NTU-affiliated authors to publish gold open access. An article processing charge (APC) is usually applicable when you publish gold open access. APC is a one-time fee paid by the author to cover the costs of making the author's article available as open access, in open access journals or hybrid journals. The following presents a current list of read-and-publish agreements that give NTU-affiliated authors the opportunity to publish open access journal articles without incurring any APC.
