OSU Libraries has a prepaid publication plan for OSU faculty who have an article accepted by PeerJ. Faculty members' article processing charges (APCs) will be paid at the point of acceptance of their manuscript. For more information, and to submit your article, visit Oregon State University's PeerJ page.
PeerJ is a relatively new open access publisher, created by one of the founders of the Public Library of Science (PLoS). It operates a peer-reviewed journal and a preprint server, covering the biological and health sciences. All articles published in PeerJ are immediately and freely accessible on the web. Nature has described PeerJ as a “significant innovation,” and it has won several industry awards in the last year.
