PeerJ Publishing Application

Before you submit your manuscript to PeerJ, complete the application to cover your article processing charges.

About the PeerJ UTK Institutional Plan:

  • Instead of a lifetime membership plan for all authors, the Institutional Plan covers Article Processing Charges (APC).
  • APC fees are:
    • $995 per article for PeerJ and
    • $795 per article for PeerJ Computer Science.
  • Funds exist for those with an accepted article who is either:
    • faculty or staff,
    • post-doctoral student,
    • or a graduate student.

PeerJ Lifetime Membership plans:

Highly recommended – The Lifetime membership plan is one-time payment for lifetime publishing. No recurring fees. No APCs. Most importantly, this payment option is the most cost-effective way to publish. You can learn more on the PeerJ website.


Ann Viera (retired in 2020) and Peter Fernandez (Hodges Library) are the co-founders of the PeerJ publishing plan. Since founding this plan, many colleagues at the UTK Libraries promote PeerJ.
