Oberlin Group Authors in Open Access Journals at BioMedCentral

BioMedCentral (BMC) publishes 204 peer-reviewed open access journals; all of the research articles in those journals are "immediately and permanently available online without charge. A number of journals require an institutional or a personal subscription to view other content, such as reviews or paper reports." The Oberlin Group libraries have a consortial agreement with BMC, granting research staff and students from those institutions a 15% reduction in the article processing charges for manuscripts accepted for publication.

View articles authored by Oberlin Group researchers already published with BMC, including commentary from Steven Bachrach of Trinity University, proposing "a plan that both reduces the total cost of publishing chemistry and enriches the literature through incorporation of Open Data."
