Author Publishing Charges (APCs) California State University / Elsevier Renewal Announcement

In 2020, Elsevier and California State University (CSU) entered into a pilot agreement, which provided CSU researchers with access to Elsevier journals and supports open access publishing. When publishing in applicable Elsevier journals, CSU authors can choose to publish open access at no additional cost to the author. In other words, authors can publish OA for free since all Article Publishing Charge (APC) fees are waived under this agreement.
