Requirements

Institutions may invest in each of the following plans:

  • Premium plans
  • CR Plans

In all cases, institutions must comply with Researchcycles’ terms and conditions which are designed to safeguard the policies established by the scientific community on academic publications and all authors involved.

Every institution without exception shall:

  • Sign a cooperation agreement between ResearchCycles and the co-authors of the selected paper(s), where the co-author commits to actively work on the revision and improvement of the pre-print until a SCOPUS or WoS indexed journal/book series/conference product is obtained.
  • Sign an agreement with Researchcycles and its co-authors where they attest to the originality and unpublished nature of their contributions.
  • Sign an agreement stating that the management of the funds raised is the responsibility of Researchcycles and the main author of the paper. The funds raised will firstly be used to register papers in journals, book series/conference papers and, optionally, to make payments for open access in journals indexed by SCOPUS or WoS; the money remaining after publication costs is for the use of the main author and Researchcycles.
  • Sign a payment agreement between the institution and ResearchCycles.

Access to royalties for Institutions

Depending on the selected plan, the co-authors of the institution will be able to upload papers to the platform after approval by Researchcycles and will conform to the guidelines of the Researchcyclers. The remaining money collected after payment of publication costs will be paid to the next plan that the institution acquires with RC. Under no circumstances will the institution receive cash.
