In connection with the publication issue, we would like to inform you about the offer of bonuses that selected publishing houses provide to authors from academic and scientific institutions as part of the CzechElib project (National Center for Electronic Information Resources). Bonuses were negotiated as part of resource subscriptions, or transformation contracts between CzechElib and selected publishers for the period 2022–2024. Transformation contracts transfer part of the subscription fee (Read Fee) to a publication fee (Article Processing Charge – APC) and thus enable authors from institutions to subsequently publish with the publisher in the selected Open Access (OA) model. Thanks to UJEP’s membership in the CzechElib project, our corresponding authors also have the opportunity to receive a discount or complete remission of fees for publishing their works.
Bonuses offered for UJEP:
