How to submit your article

  • The corresponding author confirms the licence type (e.g. CC-BY).
  • The APC is automatically waived for authors who have used an institutional email address belonging to one of the participating institutions 
  • Author identification

Authors will be identified as eligible for open access publishing by your:

  • UC email address
  • Institutional affiliation

Authors must use their institutional email address when submitting an article for publication in order for the publication to be approved to be published open access with no transactional APCs.
