What: Free publication for your peer-reviewed PeerJ articles!
When: Ends November 30th 2014.
In association with Open Access Week we are delighted to announce that from now until November 30th 2014 we are offering free publication of your article.
Since PeerJ began publishing in February 2013 we have published a significant amount of great science, with hundreds of articles and preprints, culminating in the work of over 3,000 authors. In recognition of Open Access Week we’d like to add your work to the thousands of authors who have already published with PeerJ.
We know that many authors have yet to experience the benefits of publishing in an open access journal, so where better to publish than in PeerJ, the award winning open access journal? Our authors truly value the fact that they can publish with us at low cost and high speed, whilst we pride ourselves on the high-quality submission and transparent peer-review process their research undergoes. We also want researchers like you to experience the benefits that our end-to-end process provides with the integration of PrePrints into our full publishing platform.
As a result, we are pleased to announce that from now through the end of November 2014, any article that is submitted to PeerJ PrePrints (including any articles which have already been submitted there) can go on to be published in PeerJ entirely for free (assuming it passes peer review and assuming you initiate the PeerJ submission process before end of day November 30th 2014).
As we celebrate Open Access Week and the upcoming 11 year anniversary of the Berlin Declaration (one of the seminal moments in the history of Open Access), we want to make sure that researchers realize that Open Access publishing has evolved, and we want as many as possible to experience what it has become. We look forward to welcoming you as a PeerJ author.
Note: * For clarification, your preprint must be posted to PeerJ PrePrints before the associated PeerJ submission is editorially Accepted, or before end of day November 30th 2014 (whichever comes first). We recommend that you (a) submit the PrePrint first, and then once it is published you will have the opportunity to (b) submit the same article to PeerJ for formal peer review, via the “Submit to PeerJ” button which will then be appearing in your manuscript summary screen (using this button means you do not have to re-enter any metadata). Your resulting PeerJ submission must be initiated before November 30th 2014.
* For those authors who have access to a PeerJ publishing plan via your institution you may already be eligible to publish your article for free, and beyond this offer ending November 30th . Talk to your library or visit the PeerJ Institutional Page for more information and eligibility criteria.
