Publishing open access in Nature research journals for African research institutions at no cost

Free OA in Nature

This editorial, New initiative contributes to ensuring equity in research, announces a new policy for Nature journals that will benefit researchers in Africa in terms of achieving accessibility of their work without the need to pay for open access. It is a step in the right direction.

“Researchers from African research institutions and universities in low-income countries (LICs) or lower-middle-income countries (LMICs), whose work is accepted for publication in Nature and the Nature research journals, can now publish their work open access (OA) at no cost.”
