New for 2022! Publish your work for free in Public Library of Science (PLoS) journals


We have just subscribed to membership of one of the Open Access deals with PLOS which means that if you are a Cranfield corresponding author you can publish your article open access without paying an article processing charge (APC) in the following PLOS journals:

  • PLOS Computational Biology
  • PLOS Digital Health
  • PLOS Genetics
  • PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases
  • PLOS Pathogens

How and when you use the membership:

As a corresponding author, when you submit your article to one of the above PLOS titles, ensure that you click in the radio button to select the option that states “My institution will fully or partially pay the fee as a member of the PLOS Institutional Account Program”.

Then select Cranfield University as your institution from the drop-down box provided.


For more information on how you can publish your work open access with either no fee or a discounted rate,  please see our Publisher Deals web page.
