Free and Discounted Open Access Publishing for Busitema Researchers

Busitema University Library announces an exciting partnership Between the Consortium of Uganda University Libraries (CUUL) and Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL) to offer Ugandan authors free and discounted access to open-access publishing opportunities. 

Through negotiations facilitated by EIFL, CUUL has secured agreements with various publishers to waive or discount Article Processing Charges (APCs) for corresponding Ugandan authors. This means that researchers affiliated with CUUL member Institutions now have the chance to publish their scholarly articles in various reputable journals across various subject areas, without the financial burden typically associated with such publications.
A diverse selection of journals covering fields like Management, Health Sciences, Science Education, Humanities, and Agriculture are accessible to Ugandan scholars. Some of the notable journals include the "American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias," "Experimental Agriculture," "Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicine: An Open Access Journal," "European Journal of Psychotraumatology," and "BRQ Business Research Quarterly," among many others.
Publishers such as SAGE Publications, Cambridge University Press, Taylor & Francis, and World Scientific actively participate in this initiative.

Being a CUUL Member, Busitema University authors and researchers now have free or discounted access to these reputable journals to share their knowledge with the global academic community without financial barriers.  If you click on the Download button, you will get a full list of eligible journals for corresponding authors from Uganda to publish in open access under these agreements.
