Oxford University Press
Read- and publish agreement
Researchers at Lund University can use agreements to publish open access with easy handling of the administrative processes and negotiated costs. Read more about the terms of the agreement here.
About the agreement
The agreement grants open access publishing in a selection of Oxford University Press journals. Initially the cost of publishing is paid by the University Library.
The agreement covers all peer-reviewed research articles.
The corresponding author must be affiliated to Lund University and have stated Lund University as their affiliation in the article in order to be able to publish open access within the agreement. the license CC-BY 4.0 is normally offered on articles, but some journals only allow CC BY-NC and CC BY-NC-ND. The "Standard license" refers to paywalled content and is not an open access license.
The agreement only covers the APC, no other publishing costs, such as color print charges or offprints are included.
Journals included in this or other current publisher agreements are found by using our search service where all journal titles are listed.
Workflow for authors
Please use the institutional email address (ending with “lu.se” or “lth.se”) when submitting.
When your article is accepted for publication, please do the following:
- Log-in to OUP's "Author Services" site via the received email.
- On the page "Manuscript Licenses", select the type of licence which the article should be covered by. After selecting an open access licence (e.g. CC BY) and accepting the terms of that license the author will go on to the page "Publishing Charges for Your Article".
- Go to the sub-header ”Open Access Prepayment Account” and select "Swedish Universities (Bibsam affiliated)" in the scroll-down menu.
Publishing costs at Lund University
Parts of the costs of publishing, both within the agreements and those paid with the extra publishing support, are later invoiced to the faculties. Depending on how your faculty chooses to handle the costs, you may have to pay a part of the publication fee at a later stage.
