A Series of Researcher-Centric Webinars

Maybe you’re brand new to the publishing process, maybe you’re not. But we can all agree that the world of academic publishing is becoming increasingly complex.

We invite you to join us for an engaging series of webinars where we put the researcher in the spotlight. During the sessions, we’ll do 360-degree deep dives into the concept of Open Access and address all types of OA questions and concerns to help you, as a researcher, feel more educated, inspired, and confident in navigating the world of Open Access.

Webinar description

All There is to Know About APCs

For the second session in this webinar series, you can look forward to becoming a full expert on one of the central components in OA publishing: Article processing charges (APCs).

Because what exactly does an APC cover? And who'll pay it?

No need to worry. We'll guide you through all you need to know about APCs.

Publisher Relations & Business Development Manager, Romy Beard, will be joining us along with Customer Care Specialist & Researcher, Laura Davidson, who'll put their heads together and discuss APCs from a to z.

The session will start with a fundamental in-depth look into APCs in relation to the different OA/subscription models. We will share insights into handling APCs, and we’ll hear from the researcher's perspective on how to deal with APCs.

As always, we’ll be sure to include a talk about where you can go to find resources that can help you when dealing with APCs on your publishing journey.


What you’ll gain from this session

  • A solid understanding of what APCs are, the role they play in your publishing journey, and what they mean in relation to different OA/subscription models
  • Key insights into a researcher’s experience with APCs during their publishing journey
  • Assistance as to where you can go for resources that can help you learn more about APCs in relation to your publishing journey
