Stirling joins JMIR Publications Agreement: free Open Access Publishing for our authors

Stirling has joined the JMIR Publications Open Access Deal until end of February 2023.

Stirling authors will have free uncapped open access publishing in all JMIR journals – covering fully Open Access journals broadly in the field of digital health research. Including titles such as: JMIR (Journal of Medical Internet Research); JMIR Public Health and Surveillance; JMIR Aging; JMIR Nursing and JMIR Bioinformatics & Biotechnology. See the full list of journals.

Open access publication is free at the point of publication to the author, the costs have already been covered by a fee paid by the library. The only requirement is that the Stirling author is the corresponding author.  

There is no need to apply to Stirling’s APC Fund or inform the Library when publishing in these journals as the corresponding author.

If you are not the corresponding author you may still be eligible for funding from the University APC Fund: you should apply to the APC fund before submitting to a journal (see the eligibility criteria at the top of the submission form).

The Agreement will be retrospective from 1st April 2022 and runs until 31st March 2023.

The University is a member of a number of agreements supporting the move to greater open access for our research, in cost efficient ways – see our Publisher Memberships and Transformative Arrangements page.
