PLOS logo

 

 

 

 

Open to all University of Southampton corresponding authors, providing open access as no cost to the author in all PLOS titles. We are institutional members of two PLOS partnership models, covering all PLOS journals:

 

Community Action Publishing (PLOS Biology, PLOS Medicine, and PLOS Sustainability and Transformation)

  • Upon submitting your manuscript to either PLOS Biology, PLOS Medicine, or PLOS Sustainability and Transformation, be sure to list your institutional affiliation in the submission system, Editorial Manager. If your work is accepted for publication, PLOS will check this field and ensure that your benefits are applied to any publication fees. 
  • If you are the corresponding author, or if all authors of the manuscripts are members, your publication fees are automatically covered. If the corresponding author is not a member, but at least one of the manuscript’s co-authors is a member, you’ll receive a 25% discount towards the non-member fee. 

Flat Fee Agreement (PLOS ONE, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Digital Health, PLOS Genetics, PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases, and PLOS Pathogens)

  • Upon submitting your manuscript to any of the eligible PLOS journals, be sure to list your institutional affiliation in the submission system, Editorial Manager. If your work is accepted for publication, PLOS will check this field and ensure that your benefits are applied to waive any publication fees.

 

Applies to articles accepted for publication between 01/01/2021 and 31/12/2023.
