About the agreement
The agreement is a national so-called "Read & Publish" agreement. Through the agreement, researchers at Lund University receive a 25% discount on the fee for publishing books open access and free publishing of open access articles in the publisher's journals.
The agreement applies to books and articles published after October 1st, 2019.
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.
