Article Processing Charges – Update

The University of Northampton has an institutional fund for the payment of article processing charges.

Publishing “gold” allows your research, the published version,  to be made freely available immediately upon publication to anyone with internet access.  This enables people to access your work without waiting for embargo periods to pass (which can be up to 5 years or more!) and for the published version to be made freely available, rather than your accepted manuscript!

The University has entered into a number of agreements that allow us discounts on the cost of article processing charges:

  • IEEE (25% discount – prepaid account)
  • Springer (All APCs at zero cost – please select the open access option)
  • SAGE (£200 Discount)
  • Taylor and Francis (75% discount on most journals)
  • Wylie (25% Discount)

When publishing with any of the above publishers, please contact openaccess@northampton.ac.uk and we will guide you through the process.

If you have any questions in relation to article processing charges, copyright or the quality of a journal,  please do contact openaccess@northampton.ac.uk prior to signing a copyright transfer agreement.

 

New trial: SAGE Video

SAGE_videoSAGE Video comprises video collections in the social sciences and covers the subject areas of education; media, communication and cultural studies; and counseling and psychotherapy.  Content includes tutorials, interviews and practical advice.

The website is currently in test mode and the full site will be launching soon. Approximately 50% of the videos are currently live on the site, and SAGE aim to have all the content in the collections by July 2015. In the meantime, you can view a complete list of titles here.  There is also a ‘Help Page’ for guidance on using the SAGE Video platform features.

The trial to SAGE video is available on campus only.

Hannah Rose, Academic Librarian for Education, has arranged this trial and would appreciate your thoughts and feedback.
