Open Access Publishing

Publishing in an Open Access journal incurs an article processing fee. The Library currently provides two deals that include discounts on accepted articles where the corresponding auther is SVHM - Oxford (10% discount) and Cambridge University Press (free for 2024).

SVHM does not have an institutional fellowship with BMJ Publishing

A co-author of the work who has an affiliation with a University in the Council of Australian University Libraries (CAUL) can contact their University to apply for a reduced cost for the manuscript. Australian Universities part of CAUL have consortia agreements with many, but not all, journals/publishers. Their membership gives the University's authors a discount or waiver on the fee.
