Read- and publish agreement
Researchers at Lund University can through an agreement publish open access, free of charge, in Wiley journals. The agreement includes both the publisher's pure OA journals and hybrid journals.

About the agreement

The agreement provides free open access publishing in both the publisher's open access- and hybrid journals when the Corresponding author is affiliated with Lund University. Hybrid journals are subscription-based journals with an open access option.

Since the agreement is national, there is a limit to the total number of articles published for all participants in the agreement.

The agreement applies to articles accepted from January 1st, 2020.

Workflow for authors

State your affiliation to Lund University and always use the LU / LTH e-mail in contact with the publisher.

When publishing in the the hybrid journals, Corresponding author receives information by e-mail that the article is covered by the agreement and is asked to log into Wiley's Author services. In the platform, the author can choose a license and that the article should be open access, and also confirm the affiliation.

When publishing in the publisher's open access journals, the Corresponding author must, upon submission, state that they belong to an organisation that has an agreement with Wiley and that the article should be paid through the agreement.
