PLOS Brings Canadian Universities Into Its New Publishing Model

PLOS and CRKN (Canadian Research Knowledge Network) signed an agreement that allows CRKN members to participate in PLOS’ Community Action Publishing (CAP) program. This “new collective action publishing model” enables 19 participating CRKN institutions—including Ontario Tech University and the universities of Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, and Toronto—“to publish fee-free in PLOS Medicine and PLOS Biology. [It] shifts publishing costs from authors to research institutions based on prior publishing history as affiliated with corresponding and contributing authors. The group collectively contributes to the shared cost recovery target and any surplus revenue collected by PLOS is redistributed to members.”

Institutions can join the agreement at any time during its initial 3-year period.

For more information, read the blog post.
