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 Emerald Open Research, the International Journal of Climate Change Strategies and Management and Mental Illness.

 

Who is eligible for an APC waiver? 

  • 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, and which have a 2018 gross domestic product of less than 200 billion US dollars, are eligible for a 50% waiver.

Waivers will be automatically applied during the submission process.
