About the agreement
The deal is a so-called Offset agreement, which means that a large proportion of the fees for publishing articles open access in hybrid journals are repaid to the library and deducted from next year's subscription fee.
The agreement applies to articles published in 2019 and later.
The agreement covers publishing Open Access free of charge in abut 50 of IOP's hybrid journals, the subscription-based journals where articles can be made openly available for a publishing fee. The agreement includes research articles of the types: Letters, Papers or Special Issue articles (review articles are not included).
If you wish to publish in a fully open access journal with IOP, you can apply for support from the central LU APC-fund.
Workflow for authors
When a corresponding author submit a manuscript to an IOP journal, it is important to state the affiliation with Lund University and use LU / LTH e-mail address. In this way, the article is automatically identified as valid for open access publishing within the framework of the agreement.
If the article is accepted for publication, the University library receives a message to verify the affiliation, and the article becomes openly available directly upon publication.
