The subsidy model and APCs

Brill’s open access article processing charges page includes 5 journals that are fully sponsored and therefore the APC is waived and 2 for which fees are reduced due to partial sponsorship. Two examples of this commercial / sponsor partnership model follow.

Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde / Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences of South East Asia This journal is fully sponsored by the learned society Vereniging KITLV (NL), therefore the APC is waived.

Fascism  The APC is reduced for this journal because of the generous support of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research NWO.

This post is part of the open access article processing charges project.
