Frontiers Media S. A. is an open access publisher offering peer-reviewed journals in the fields of science, technology and medicine. The University of Göttingen (including Göttingen University Medical Center) has entered into an institutional agreement with the publisher that includes a discount on publication costs.

Time period: 2014 –

Gold Open Access

Publishing in genuine Gold Open Access journals: a 10% discount on publication costs is granted.

The publication costs for 'corresponding authors' of the University of Göttingen (including the University Medical Center Göttingen) can be financed completely or proportionally by the publication fund for journal articles of the University of Göttingen. University funds are used for this purpose. The funding requirements with funding reference are mentioned under 'Financial support by university funding'.

The publication process for authors

  • You are a 'corresponding author' and submit your article directly to the journal.
  • The assignment of eligible publications as well as identification and information of eligible authors is done by the publisher.
  • The SUB Open Access team will then be informed about your article and asked for confirmation.
  • The article usually receives the Creative Commons license CC BY 4.0 as publication license.

In addition to being published by the publisher, the article is made accessible and archived via GRO.publications, the publication management system of the University of Göttingen.
