"Do you really need a load of gold to pay for a gold open access publication?
Last week a colleague was asking how to find good quality open access journals with reasonable fees in his research domain. Having previous experience with submitting manuscripts to various journals, this researcher was feeling confused by the differences in the costs and policies related to Article Processing Charges (APCs). We both work in universities which still do not have a regulated stream to support the publishing fees for gold open access publications. Could one conclude that this restricts academics to solely use the green open access route? Here I present some helpful hints for tapping into financial support for gold open access."
