Publisher agreements

Through different types of publisher agreements, researchers at Lund University can publish open access without paying, or only paying a part, of the author fees in subscription-based and open access journals.

Agreements with free or discounted publication fees

Through national agreements, negotiated by the National Library of Sweden, researchers at Lund University can take advantage of discounts and subsidized or fully prepaid author fees to publish open access in hybrid journals and in some cases also publish in open access journals.

Hybrid journals include individual articles that are freely available, but the journal as a whole requires a subscription. The university APC fund does not support publishing in hybrid journals, instead some may be covered by the publishing agreements listed below.

In order to use the agreements, the corresponding author must be affiliated to Lund University.
