GLOBEQUITY: Promoting platinum open access for low and middle income country scientists – A publication fee waiver program for two Swiss society journals.
The GLOBEQUITY program counters an inequity where scientists in LMIC+ face discriminatory barriers to publish open access (OA) given that their governments, universities and research institutions cannot fund the article processing charges (APC). In addition, agreements of publishers supporting OA are signed mostly with high-income countries and wealthy research institutions.
To promote global equity in OA, GLOBEQUITY supports authors from low/middle income countries and from some countries in economic transition (LMIC+) with extended APC discounts or platinum open access (OA) until 2024. Eligible are first authors affiliated with institutions in low/ middle income countries (research4life classification) and in additional countries in Latin America, Central and Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa, who do not have access to other APC funds.
GLOBEQUITY is funded by the Open Science Program of swissuniversities.
APC Waiver Program for SSPH+ Affiliates
IJPH and PHR manuscripts with successful peer-review and with at least one author affiliated with SSPH+ (at time of submission) will be published free of charge (no APC is due) under the following conditions:
