Library update: Zero fee publication agreement with PLOS

We are pleased to announce that UofT expanded its agreement with the Public Library of Science (PLOS) to fully cover author publication costs for all twelve PLOS journals, including PLOS ONE.   

Under the terms of this agreement, which began on January 1, 2022, and was negotiated via the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), U of T corresponding authors (i.e. including students) benefit from unlimited publishing in all PLOS journals without having to pay article processing fees. 

In the case of PLOS Medicine, PLOS Biology, and the newly-launched PLOS Sustainability and Transformation, this agreement continues a key benefit of our previous agreement and extends a 25% discount to non-U of T corresponding authors for papers where U of T researchers are co-authors. 

This deal is part of the ongoing strategy by the University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) to support initiatives that work towards immediate and barrier-free access to research. For questions or comments:

Please share this excellent news with your supervisors and peers.
