Workflow for authors
To facilitate for the publisher to identify researchers from organisations included in the agreement, please make sure of the following:
- You have stated your affiliation with (a department at) the University
- You are using your LU / LTH e-mail in the correspondence
- You must also state that the University is a part of the agreement, in the submission process there is an option to choose Lund University in a drop-down list.
