Re: Publishing fee discounts tied to library subscriptions

Dear Mrs. Bahnmaier,

"Journal of Instrumentation (JINST) is a multidisciplinary, 
peer-reviewed and online-only journal designed to support the 
needs of this expanding community. JINST was created jointly by 
the International School of Advanced Studies (SISSA) and IOP 

Please see: http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-0221/

The subscription fee for JINST is 579 British Pounds. Authors 
from a subscribing institution may publish three open access 
(golden) articles a year in JINST without paying an additional 
fee. If authors from a subscribing institution published more 
than three article in JINST, the subscription fee will rise for 
the next year, and vice versa.

I am happy with this model of golden open access publishing. The 
library manages the subscription and the authors are freed form 
arcticle processing charges and the associated bureaucracy. Not 
to mention the advantages for the publisher.

Betreff: Publishing fee discounts tied to library subscriptions

Recently it came to my attention that Mary Ann Liebert Publishing 
offers a 50% discount on open option publishing fees to authors 
who are affiliated with an institution that subscribes to the 
Liebert Online full package. (Subscribing to the full package is 
called "Institutional Membership")



Does anyone else know of any publishers who reduce publishing 
fees to authors when their libraries have subscribed?
