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.
