Institutional partnerships

The Frontiers Institutional Partnerships program works with hundreds of research institutions, libraries, consortia and funders to streamline the way in which researchers are supported financially when publishing open access.

If you're a librarian, resource manager or are responsible for the enablement of open access policies in your institution and would like to know more about our institutional plans, please get in touch.
