Our solutions to eliminate APCs

Open Access is not truly open without easy and equitable opportunities to publish. To support authors of all research communities, funding backgrounds, and institutional requirements, all PLOS journals offer APC-alternative business models through institutional partnerships.

Check if your institution is partnering with us and see if you can submit your research to PLOS Genetics without paying APCs.
