How do I apply this deal?

This discount will be automatically applied once a researcher selects their institutional affiliation as part of the submission process. 

The affiliation of the corresponding author is used to determine eligibility for waived APCs so please ensure that the corresponding author is agreed before submission.

If your article is accepted, the publisher will send a link to the RightsLink system and an automatic fee-waiver will be applied.
