Open Access Publishing

Open Access

Tel Aviv University libraries and MALMAD have reached an agreement with leading publishers, which allows TAU researchers to publish open access articles free of charge or with significant discount.


What are the advantages of Open Access publishing?

  • Increased number of citations and improved reputation for the researcher: when an article is accessible to the research community worldwide, more readers can cite it. The increase in the number of citations helps boost the researcher’s impact, as well as the rank of the university.
  • Immediate availability of research to the global research community.
  • Larger audience is exposed to the articles.
  • More chances to cooperate with reseachers inside the university and worldwide.
  • Research availability makes plagiarism harder.
  • Fulfilling open access requirements of research grants.


Why publish with these publishers?

  • Lower cost for the researchers.
  • Articles are peer reviewed.


Which publishers are included in the agreement?

  • Karger - Free of charge (No APC)
  • Sage - significantly reduced payment of 200£


How do you publish?

  • When applying to the editorial board of the journal, make sure you use your TAU e-mail address.
  • Once the article is accepted, after being peer reviewed, you will be asked if you wish to publish it as an Open Access article. Acknowledge that you agree.
  • Publishing in Portland Press' journals:
    • A step-by-step guide for open access publishing
    • List of the publisher's open access journals included in the agreement: Biochemical Journal, Biochemical Society Symposia, Biochemical Society Transactions, Bioscience Reports, Clinical Science, Emerging Topics in Life Sciences, Essays in Biochemistry.
