Massachusetts Institute of Technology partnership
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) supports its researchers in making their research more widely available. As part of this support, the MIT Libraries has entered an institutional agreement with Frontiers.
Under the terms of this agreement, MIT-affiliated corresponding authors will benefit from a 15% partnership discount on article publishing charges (APCs) when publishing in any of Frontiers’ open access journals, irrespective of what fund covers the APC.
The power of open access
As one of the world's leading open access publishers, we believe in the transformative power of open science. Articles published with us are free and permanently accessible worldwide - so anyone can benefit from the discoveries, not just a selection of researchers.
Your article will be freely and permanently available immediately after publication, ensuring maximum reach, impact, and visibility.
More scientists can read the results of your research, including the wider public unable to access the information because they lack a subscription.
Open access improves the quality of your research through open, transparent, and reproducible practices made available to a global audience.
Are you a researcher at MIT?
Frontiers works with research institutions, libraries, consortia and funders to improve support for researchers publishing open access. We work to:
reduce administrative time for authors and institutions by centralizing communications and streamlining submission and payment workflows.
release authors from some/all responsibility for article processing charges (APCs) - contact your institution or librarian for full details.
simplify the submission process to ensure authors can submit their work quickly and easily with step-by-step support.
Are you eligible?
To be eligible under the partnership, you need to ensure:
The discount will be automatically applied if MIT-affiliated corresponding authors submit manuscripts with an MIT institutional email address.
If they submit via another email domain but they indicate MIT as the affiliation on the paper, Frontiers will verify eligibility for the discount with the MIT Libraries.
For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not an MIT-affiliated author?
We collaborate with over 700 institutions across the world. If you want to join them, tell your librarian about Frontiers institutional plans - just submit our recommendation form.
