When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.

Institutional Partners

We provide several models for institutions to support their authors’ work at PLOS, either through direct payment of APCs (direct-billing), Flat Fee contributions towards future publications, or Community Action Publishing membership. 

Institutions listed below have partnered with PLOS in one or more agreements to make Open Access more accessible to their authors. 

Please note, with exception of our Community Action Publishing partners for PLOS Biology and PLOS Medicine (indicated below as “CAP Member”), institutional funds are applied to corresponding authors. Institutions reserve the right to accept or reject who they will fund per their internal funding policies. For APCs in which the institution does not accept responsibility per their review, PLOS will invoice the authors individually.

For more information about our partnership programs and author benefits, please see the links below.

If you have any questions about PLOS Institutional Partnerships, please direct your questions via email to:

Contact your institution directly if you have questions on their internal funding policies.

Institutions are listed by country:
A-D | E-J | K-N | O-T | UK | US | V-Z















United Kingdom

Please note that some UK Institutions will only provide Open Access funding for publication costs associated with research projects that are funded by Research Council UK (RCUK), Charity Open Access Fund (COAF) or Wellcome Trust grants. The Wellcome Trust will refund Open Access publication costs related to their grants, even after the grant is closed. Beginning 1 April 2013, RCUK provided separate APC block grants to designated UK institutions to pay for Open Access publication costs. See below for institutions with such restrictions.
