Joining Cogitatio's Institutional Membership Program

Institutional Membership is destined for institutions, groups and societies that wish to cover the whole cost of open access publishing and allow their authors to freely publish and disseminate their articles to a broader readership. Cogitatio offers two different types of Institutional Membership:

  • Prepaid Membership: The institution pays an annual flat rate which covers the article processing fees of all manuscripts accepted for publication in our journals with one or more authors belonging to the member institution.
  • Postpaid Membership: The institution is not charged an annual rate, and only pays article processing fees for articles accepted for publication in the journal with one or more authors belonging to the member institution. The institution receives an automatic discount of 20% for each accepted manuscript. Institutions may establish a cap for the maximum number of manuscripts to be considered under this Postpaid Membership agreement.
