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.
