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 enables open access publishing in the hybrid journals when the corresponding author is affiliated with Lund University. Hybrid journals are subscription-based journals with an open access option. The agreement does not include the publisher's open access journals: Chemical Science, Nanoscale Advances or RSC Advances.
Initially the cost of publishing is paid by the University Library.
Workflow for authors
Corresponding author of the article should be affiliated to Lund University and submit the article using the institutional e-mail (ending with “lu.se” or “lth.se”). The publisher will offer open access publishing when the article has been accepted for publishing and inform that the cost is covered by the national agreement.
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.
