Researchers at Lund University can use various agreements to publish with open access. The agreements give the author lower publishing costs and simplified handling of administrative processes. Read more about the terms of the agreement here

About the agreement

The agreement provides unlimited open access publishing in all journals from Frontiers. The agreement is valid from January 1st 2024. 

The agreement covers all article types. All articles are published under the CC-BY license.

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

APC paid by research funding agencies

The Swedish research funding agencies Forte, Formas, Vinnova and The Swedish Research Council have jointly decided to finance the APC fee of publishers that hold only fully open access journals. Frontiers is covered by this, which means that all researchers at Lund University can publish in Frontiers journals without fees for author or organisation. Authors at Lund University do not need to do anything extra for the handling to work.

Workflow for authors

To make it easier for the publishers and research funding agencies to identify researchers from participating organisations, it is important to do 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.
