Notes: Hybrid journals are subscription-based journals which allow a portion of articles to be open access. Usually an APC fee is applied to OA publishing.

Who is eligible?

  • You are the Corresponding author of your article
  • You must use AUT affiliation and email address during the submission/publishing process

How it works

  • When your manuscript has been accepted by an Elsevier hybrid journal, the system will confirm your eligibility for the 12.5% APC discount

            

  • When "Publish as an open access article" is selected, you will see the 12.5% deduction and the amount of APC you need to pay:

             

  • As the discount is offered to CAUL member subscribers, an approval process will be carried out by CAUL
  • After the approval, you will then be invoiced for the remainder 

If you would like to know more about the Elsevier Author publication process, please read the online guide on the Elsevier website.

 

Notes:  You (and your co-author/s) will need to pay for the rest of the Article Publishing Charge.
