Researchers at Qatar Biomedical Research Institute, a national research center within Hamad Bin Khalifa University, learned about the range of open access publishing services at Qatar National Library, in a lecture entitled, “Open Access Publishing Fund at Qatar National Library.”
The Library provides practical support to Qatar-based researchers wishing to publish open access articles. An Open Access Author Fund covers article processing charges (APCs) for open access publications.
“The Library offers fascinating services for researchers wishing to publish their work on open access journals and platforms. This is very helpful for science researchers in Qatar to share their articles with interested readers in Qatar and beyond. I recommend everyone to use this incredible opportunity,” said Vishnubalaji Radhakrishnan, Researcher at Qatar Biomedical Research Institute.
The Library has agreements with open access publishers to support its existing Open Access Author Fund. Corresponding authors, which include students, faculty, researchers, staff from any institute of higher education or non-profit research institute in Qatar, qualify for 100 percent discounts.
“As a strong supporter of the Open Access movement, I am very pleased about the efforts of Qatar National Library. It is at the forefront of scientific publishing and will help put Qatar on the world map in the scientific community,” said Dr. Julie Decock, Scientist at Qatar Biomedical Research Institute.
