Emerald is committed to making open access accessible and inclusive to all and support publication of research from low- or middle-income countries. This is why we invest in a waiver programme that allows authors from these countries to publish their work in our fully open access titles, either without charge or with a 50% discount.
Our fully open access titles include the Journal of Responsible Production and Consumption (JRPC), Quality Education for All (QEA), International Perspectives on Health Equity (IPHEE), Urbanization, Sustainability and Society (USS) and the International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management. Mental Illness, owned by Emerald but run by Hindawi, also has waivers available here: https://www.hindawi.com/publish-research/authors/waiver-policy/
Who is eligible for an APC waiver?
- JRPC, QEA, IPHEE and USS are offering waivers to all authors until Jul 31st 2024.
- Corresponding authors based in countries classified by the World Bank as ‘low’ income are eligible for a full waiver.
- Corresponding authors based in countries classified by the World Bank as ‘lower – middle’ income are eligible for a 50% waiver
Waivers will be automatically applied during the submission process.
