Is it possible for UniTrento authors to publish in Open Access by taking advantage of discounts or facilitations on the APC (Article Processing Charge) payment?

This webinar, the first of two online meetings, is dedicated to discovering what transformative agreements are and which categories of authors are interested in them, what are the criteria for accessing the funds, which publishing houses are currently involved and what is the procedure for joining Open Access publication. A section of the webinar will be entirely dedicated to questions from the audience.

The second part will be held in Autumn; details will be released as soon as they are available.

Topics: Publishing in Open Access; What are transformative agreements; What and how many transformative agreements UniTrento has entered into to date; Who can access funds under transformative agreements; What is the Author's Journey; Where to find the necessary information before applying for publication in OA; What the author needs to remember to successfully complete the application for funds.
