We are pleased to announce that the German National APC agreement between EDP Sciences and the Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB) – German National Library of Science and Technology will continue in 2020. The successful partnership is an excellent example of effective international cooperation and demonstrates how robust institutional arrangements can benefit individual scientists and scholars.
The agreement enables corresponding authors affiliated with German academic institutions to receive a 20 percent discount off the article processing charge (APC) when they publish in EDP Sciences open access (OA) journals. Eligible titles include Astronomy & Astrophysics, Parasite and Acta Acustica. A significant number of authors have already taken advantage of the arrangement to publish with EDP Sciences.
As well as the APC agreement, there is a corresponding agreement between EDP Sciences and TIB which offers attractive terms for the publication of conference proceedings. Web of Conferences, managed by EDP Sciences, is an open access platform devoted to the publication of scientific conference proceedings. The platform offers flexible, high quality services in the areas of:
- Biology, Life Sciences and Health
- Environment, Energy and Earth Sciences
- Physics and Astronomy
- Information Technology, Computer Science and Mathematics
- Materials Science, Engineering and Chemistry
- Humanities and Social Sciences
This long-standing agreement is also set to continue and is a clear indication of the strength of the relationship between EDP Sciences and TIB.
