Open Access Institutional Programme

A number of institutions have joined BMJ’s Open Access Programme, which can either cover the whole cost of Open Access publishing for authors at participating institutions, or can allow authors to receive a discount off the Article Publishing Charge (APC). If you would like to learn more about the programme, please visit our Information for Institutions page.

If you are a researcher at the following participating institutions, your APC may be reduced or fully covered through the programme. Please contact your librarian to obtain further information on how to receive a discount or publish free of charge.
