About the agreement

Initially the cost of publishing is paid by the University Library.
The corresponding author must be affiliated to Lund University and have stated Lund University as their affiliation in the article to be able to publish open access within the agreement.
The agreement applies to articles accepted on or after 2021-01-01.
Journals included in this or other current publisher agreements are found by using our search service where all journal titles are listed. There are no separate journal lists for each agreement.
Workflow for authors
State the affiliation to Lund University and always use the LU / LTH e-mail when submitting the manuscript. Please select the open access option upon submission.
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.
