Workflow for authors
When the corresponding author, submits a manuscript to an IOP journal, it is important to state the affiliation with Lund University and use the institutional e-mail address (ending with “lu.se” or “lth.se”). In this way, the article is automatically identified as valid for open access publishing within the agreement. If the article is accepted for publication, the University library receives a message to verify the affiliation, and the article becomes openly available directly upon publication.
