Apologies for cross posting

The Royal Society welcomes leading institutions to its Open Access Membership Programme

The growing number of members since its launch early last year demonstrates the success of the Royal Society’s Open Access Membership Programme<http://royalsocietypublishing.org/site/librarians/membership.xhtml>,
as University of Cambridge, MIT and The University of Melbourne have joined the programme along with 30 other institutions → <http://royalsocietypublishing.org/site/librarians/allmembers.xhtml>.

The programme enables participating organisations to decrease the cost of the article processing charge to their authors by 25%, along with further promoting its open access publications and research output.

Institutions choosing to affiliate themselves to the prestigious charity and support its open access initiatives can find out more by visiting our membership webpages<http://royalsocietypublishing.org/site/librarians/membership.xhtml>.

For more information on how your institution can support its researchers with discounted open access article processing charges, please contact marianne.haska at royalsociety.org.

In keeping with its role as the UK's national academy of science, The Royal Society<http://royalsociety.org/> is committed to the widest possible dissemination of research outputs. Hence since 2006, any article can be published in open access under a Creative Commons license<http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/> in any of its prestigious journals<http://royalsocietypublishing.org/journals>,
including the fully gold journal Open

Remaining a fair player, The Royal Society ensures that published open access articles bearing a publication fee are deducted from subscription prices through its Transparent Pricing Mechanism <http://royalsocietypublishing.org/site/librarians/transparent_pricing.xhtml>.
