Lund University has an open access membership that grants discount on all MDPI journals and an easy handling of administrative processes with invoicing.
About the discount
Researchers at Lund University get a 20% discount on article processing charges in all journals from MDPI. The discount also applies to charges associated with open access book publishing with MDPI. Initially the cost of publishing is paid by the University Library.
The corresponding author must be affiliated with Lund University in the article. Please use the institutional e-mail (ending with lu.se or lth.se) when submitting an article.
Financial support for publishing open access
Since all journals from MDPI are pure open access, you can apply for financial support for the publishing. The invoice is sent to and initially paid by the University Library.
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.
