Imperial is participating in Jisc’s two-year pilot agreement with JMIR offering unlimited open access publishing for a flat fee.

Open access fees for any article type in any JMIR journal are covered for Imperial corresponding authors from prepaid funds deposited by the Library. Also included is unlimited free peer review of pre-prints on medRxiv, bioRxiv or PsyArXiv and subsequent publication in one of the JMIRx series of overlay journals, or transfer to a JMIR gold open access journal, under Plan P.

During submission, state your affiliation, use your Imperial email address, and state in the cover letter "Requesting APC waiver through the Imperial-JMIR unlimited OA deal". Your paper will be made open access without you needing to make a payment.

If you have any questions regarding this agreement or the process please contact the open access team.
