In order to increase the awareness of open access among Taiwan’s librarians and researchers, BioMed Central and Springer Asia are organizing an Open Access Usage Contest to reward institutions and researchers in Taiwan for their support to us.
There will be three awards – one institutional award to a Taiwan institution whose open access articles have the highest average usage, and two individual awards (one for BioMed Central and Chemistry Central journals, and one for SpringerOpen journals) to award to researchers in Taiwan whose open access articles have the highest daily average usage.
The winners will be announced in November 2013 during the CONCERT meeting. All winners will receive an article processing charge coupon for their next submission to BioMed Central, Chemistry Central or SpringerOpen.
