One of Taiwan’s leading medical research institutions, the National Health Research Institutes (NHRI), and the open-access publisher Frontiers have today announced a publishing deal effective as of August 2021. Established in 1995, NHRI is one of Asia’s leading medical research and healthcare institutions. It focuses on fields including aging, cancer, infectious diseases and vaccine research, genomic medicine, biomedical engineering, biotechnology and drug discovery, environmental and occupational health, population health, and health policy. The agreement, the first of its type in Asia for Frontiers, means that article processing charges (APCs) for articles by eligible NHRI authors in any Frontiers journal (currently 126) will be processed centrally via the NHRI library. Furthermore, NHRI and its authors will benefit from a 5% membership discount on processing charges for articles covered by this agreement. Under the terms of the deal, articles will be published under the CC-BY license and will be immediately and completely free to read. APCs will be processed through a centralized monthly billing mechanism to further reduce administrative costs and the workload for NHRI and its authors.
