Frontiers institutional partnerships
Institutional agreements between Frontiers and an organization simplify the payment process for authors who are affiliated with (or grantees of) the organization, and who wish to publish in Frontiers journals. Institutions can become partners individually, or via a (national) consortium agreement.
