Open Access publishing discounts
The University of Melbourne Library has recently taken up memberships to PLoS and The Royal Society which entitle all University of Melbourne staff and students to discounted Open Access publishing charges.
The Royal Society. Research staff and students from the University of Melbourne now benefit from a 25% discount on article processing charges for open access publication in any of the Royal Society journals, with the support of the University's open access Excellence in Science Membership.

BioMed Central. The Library has a BMC Supporter Membership which gives a 15% discount on the article-processing charges of all research articles accepted for publication in journals published by BioMed Central, Chemistry Central and SpringerOpen.
