LJMU is one of the leading research-active contemporary institutions in the UK. We have a growing reputation for excellence in research with a growing number of early career research-active staff.
In order to support our growing research profile, we have a small number of pre-paid article processing charges (APCs) available to allow researchers to publish in IEEEs open access journals. These are limited so if you wish to make use of one of these APCs please contact Cath Dishman, Open Access and Digital Scholarship Librarian, email@example.com to check availability.
