Open Access Publishing Support
Flinders University Library is supporting new publication models in the form of memberships that provide researchers with discounts on article processing charges (APCs).
The Library is a BMC Supporter Member which gives a 15% discount on the article-processing charges of all research articles accepted for publication in journals published by BioMed Central and SpringerOpen. More Information.

Royal Society of Chemistry (Ceased)
Unfortunately, the Royal Society of Chemistry ceased their open access Gold for Gold scheme in 2018. This scheme had previously enabled Flinders researchers to publish in an RSC journal free of charge, as a Gold Open Access article, without paying the normal Article Processing Charge.
