UT Austin joins MDPI

UT Austin recently joined MDPI as a member. Our membership in MDPI allows UT Austin authors to get a 10% discount on the article processing charge (APC) for journals. The APCs range in price from roughly $300-1800, and many journals have no APC. MDPI publishes over 150 journals in a wide range of disciplines. The A-Z list of journals is available here: http://mdpi.com/about/journals.

Taking advantage of this membership is very easy. Simply submit your article to an MDPI journal and select UT Austin from the Discount section – if it hasn’t been automatically selected based on your IP.

If you have any questions about the membership, please contact Colleen Lyon (c dot lyon at austin dot utexas dot edu) or your subject liaison.

UT Austin joins BioMed Central

UT Austin has joined BioMed Central (BMC) as a Supporter Member. This membership gives UT Austin authors two main benefits.

  1. 15% discount on article processing charges (APCs) for BioMed Central or SpringerOpen journals. A UT Austin author must be corresponding author to take advantage of the membership discount.
  2. In addition to being published in the journal, articles from UT authors will be automatically deposited in UT’s online archive, Texas ScholarWorks.

Taking advantage of the membership is easy! Submit your article to a BMC or SpringerOpen journal. If accepted for publication, your APC should be automatically reduced by 15%. If the reduction doesn’t happen automatically, you’ll have an opportunity to select UT Austin from a drop-down menu in the payment section and have the discount approved that way.

If you have any questions about the membership, please contact Colleen Lyon (c dot lyon at austin dot utexas dot edu) or your subject liaison.
