Support for Publishing at McMaster University

McMaster University Libraries support author publishing through participation in a number of agreements with scholarly publishers that provide Article Processing Charge (APC) discounts or waivers. Some agreements target Open Access (OA) publishing while others support a traditional publishing model. All agreements enable our authors to publish their articles and books at reduced or no cost to themselves. This guide provides information on our current initiatives, information on OA publishing colors and Creative Commons licenses.

To access waivers and discounts, always use your @mcmaster email address when submitting your research or manuscripts for publication.
