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 in both the publisher's open access- and hybrid journals when the corresponding author is affiliated with Lund University. Hybrid journals are subscription-based journals with an open access option.

Initially the cost of publishing is paid by the University Library.

The agreement covers all article types. Articles become openly available immediately upon publication.

Workflow for authors

Submit articles in the publisher's submission management system. Make sure to state the affiliation with Lund University and use the institutional e-mail (ending with “” or “”) in order to be identified as eligible for the 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.
