Workflow for authors

The publishing fee is automatically waived through RightsLink when the publisher identifies the Corresponding Author belongs to an organization covered by the agreement. To facilitate identification, it is important to state the institutional affiliation during the submission process and to submit using the institutional e-mail address (LU / LTH e-mail).

In the final step of the submission process the OA option is to be selected and also approve the APC quote, which should automatically show a zero sum fee if the organization has correctly been identified as part of an agreement.

A more detailed description of the entire workflow can be found on the publisher's website (new page).
