Covid-19 Updates Libraries Access & Support

Wednesday, March 16, 2022
Open Access (OA) is a publishing model that makes research information available to readers at no cost, as opposed to the traditional subscription model in which scholarly information is accessible by paying a subscription. One of the most important advantages of open access is that it increases the visibility and reuse of academic research results.
Average APC paid by NUS authors between 2016-2018 is SGD3200*
Publishing as Gold OA requires authors to pay Article Processing Charges (APC). We are delighted to announce two initiatives to support NUS researchers in publishing OA.

Institutionally Paid OA for NUS Authors

NUS Libraries, School of Computing, and the Office of the Deputy President (Research & Technology) have worked together to enter into a 5-year open access agreement with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). For all submissions to ACM made between Jan 1, 2021 and Dec 31, 2025, NUS corresponding authors can publish OA at no cost to the author.

Library-Supported Free-to-Publish Model

NUS Libraries is now a supporting institution of the Open Library of Humanities (OLH) from Sep 2020 to Sep 2021. The OLH is an academic publishing platform that supports 22 fully OA academic journals from across the humanities disciplines. Unlike many OA publishers, the OLH does not charge any author fees. Instead, an international library consortium covers its operational costs.
