New open access resources available to University of Miami authors

Open access (OA) publishing is a strong and growing trend within many academic fields that enables users around the world to access scholarship immediately upon publication, removing subscription barriers which are the chief obstacle to access.

In support of this evolution in scholarly communication, the University Libraries are collaborating with several publishers to pilot opportunities for our research community to publish OA journal articles. Currently, the Libraries have established OA agreements with the following four publishers:

  • Public Library of Science (PLOS) — The PLOS agreement enables University of Miami authors to publish in any of 12 journals with article processing charges covered by the Libraries; this agreement is effective through 2024.
  • Frontiers — Frontiers publishes 213 journals in a wide variety of fields, and it is a rapidly expanding publishing outlet across research communities within the University. The Libraries will cover article processing charges in Frontiers’ journals to the extent our budget allows for 2023.
  • Wiley — The Libraries’ open access publishing agreement with Wiley covers article processing charges for up to 191 articles within the 2023 calendar year and provides for open access publishing in Wiley and Hindawi journals, which include more than 1,800 journals.
  • Institute of Physics (IOP) — IOP publishes more than 75 journals; University of Miami authors can publish open access articles in IOP journals through 2025.

 For University of Miami authors to take advantage of these programs, each article’s corresponding author must be affiliated with the University. Additional information on these open access publishing programs can be found in our Open Access Funding research guide. We anticipate including additional publisher agreements for open access as they are confirmed—please revisit the research guide for future developments.

Scholarship@Miami is the research repository managed by the Libraries. If you are publishing a journal article, and your author agreement allows, you may post a pre-print or post-print of your article in Scholarship@Miami. Contact Jason Cohen, digital publishing specialist for the Libraries, for further information.
