Publishing Agreements at McMaster University

This guide provides information about McMaster University's agreements for APC discounts and waivers.

Affiliation During Submission

Publishers will usually request your affiliation during the article submission process.

Always identify as an affiliate of McMaster University and use your email address to ensure that you benefit from APC discounts and waivers.

Publisher webpages may reference one of our consortia: the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN) or the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL). In this context McMaster faculty, staff and students are affiliates of CRKN and OCUL.
