Chinese Academy of Sciences becomes BioMed Central member

Share this on social media:

The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has signed a membership agreement with BioMed Central to cover publication costs for research articles published by researchers at its institutions.

Under the terms of the arrangement, CAS, through its library, will centrally cover half of the article processing charge (APC) for its researchers should the article be accepted for publication in one of BioMed Central’s 205 peer-reviewed open access journals. CAS has long been a supporter of open access and signed the Berlin Declaration in 2004.
