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 provides open access publishing under negotiated conditions in most journals from Oxford University Press. Both open access journals and hybrid journals are included in the agreement. 

The agreement covers peer-reviewed research articles, such as Research article, Review article, Brief report, Case report. 

The CC-BY 4.0 license should normally be offered, but some journals may only allow more restrictive licenses for open access, such as CC BY-NC and CC BY-NC-ND. The "Standard license" is not an open access license and means the article remains behind a paywall. 

The corresponding author's affiliation with Lund University must be stated in the published article. 

Any additional costs, such as expenses for color images, are not included.

Workflow for authors

To facilitate publisher’s ability to identify researchers from organisations that are part of the agreement, please make sure of the following: 

  • State your affiliation with Lund University in the article and, if possible, in the publisher’s manuscript submission system. 
  • Use your institutional e-mail address (ending with “” or “”) when submitting the manuscript. 

Please refer to the publisher’s instructions for more detailed information.

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.
