(San Francisco, 11 February 2014) PeerJ (the award winning open access publisher of both PeerJ PrePrints and PeerJ) is pleased to announce that with the addition of Stanford University, twenty universities have now signed up to provide PeerJ Publication Plans to their faculty. Authors from these institutions will have their publication plans automatically paid for them, using funds centrally provided by their library.
In addition to these 20 universities, numerous others have committed to supporting Open Access charges in some form, and many of them also have public pages on PeerJ. They include libraries in the United States, United Kingdom and Canada.
PeerJ is an Open Access publisher of peer reviewed articles, which offers researchers a lifetime membership, for a single low price, giving them the ability to openly publish all future articles for free. PeerJ is based in San Francisco, CA and London, UK and can be accessed at https://peerj.com/.
