  • 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 submissions process to ensure authors are able to submit their work quickly and easily with step-by-step support.
