PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences)
Umeå University researchers can publish open access at a discount in PNAS. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher and what it means for you here.
A discount on the open access publishing fee is available through an agreement between the library and PNAS. If you wish to publish open access in the journal under a CC BY-NC-ND license, you pay a discounted APC (Article Processing Charge) of $2000 instead of $2500. If you choose a CC BY license, the APC is $2200 and there is no discount.
Terms and conditions
You must be the corresponding author, i.e., the one handling communication with the publisher and journal.
Your Umeå University affiliation must be stated in the published article.
Use your university e-mail ending with @umu.se. The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility.
You can choose to publish open access either under a CC BY-NC-ND license using our discount or under a CC BY license at the standard rate.
The journal charges a page charge for all articles. Our agreement with the publisher does not include a discount on this charge.
