PLOS Signs OA Agreement With UNAM, Its First Flat-Fee Institution in Mexico

PLOS signed a 1-year agreement with the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) to allow UNAM researchers to publish in PLOS ONE and other PLOS journals without incurring article-processing charges (APCs). The agreement—which, as a flat-fee model, shifts publishing costs from authors to research institutions—begins on Jan. 1, 2023. It allows PLOS and UNAM to collaborate on data, metrics, and tools that OA publishing agreements may implement in the future.

“We are thrilled to be collaborating with UNAM, our first flat fee institution in Mexico, which furthers our global outreach that will continue on through Latin America,” says Sara Rouhi, director of strategic partnerships at PLOS. “As the largest research institution in Mexico, UNAM is uniquely well-positioned to demonstrate the benefits of Open Access publishing and Open Research practices.”
