Cogent OA Redefines APC Strategy

Open access (OA) publisher Cogent OA introduced the Freedom APC (article processing charge) initiative. This experimental model lets authors choose the prices of their own APCs. They can explore various avenues for funding their articles’ publication—funding agencies, institutions, or companies, etc.—and select an APC from a range of options that are based on how much they can afford. Cogent OA plans to release an initial analysis of the model in 2016 to generate discussion on OA affordability and the development of APC models and fee structures.

“We’re introducing Freedom APCs as a mechanism to test to what degree authors can afford to pay article publishing charges,” says Bryan Vickery, Cogent OA’s director. “[W]e’re keen to learn how much cost is a barrier to the uptake of Open Access[.]”
