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:

  • Monthly Membership: The institution pays a flat rate of €80/month (plus VAT if applicable) which covers the article processing fees of all manuscripts accepted for this journal with one or more authors belonging to the member institution.
  • Postpaid Membership: The institution is not charged a monthly 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, paying a reduced fee of €280 (plus VAT if applicable). Institutions may establish a cap for the maximum number of manuscripts to be considered under this Postpaid Membership agreement.

All institutional members will be duly acknowledged on the journal's website and the cover pages of articles. Cogitatio will also help disseminate information about events organized by its institutional members which are relevant to the journal's readership.
