Read- and publish agreement

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 allows open access publishing in all hybrid journals and open access journals from Wiley. Initially the cost of publishing is paid by the University Library.

Articles belonging to the general categories Original article, Primary research article or Review article are included in the agreement. The article types are often referred to in other ways in the publisher's journals but may correspond to or be included in one of the main categories. Feel free to contact the publisher if you are unsure whether a type is covered by the agreement.

The corresponding author must be affiliated with Lund University, and the affiliation must be stated in the article.

Articles are normally published under the license CC BY, but some of the publisher’s journals only allow the licenses CC BY-NC or CC BY-NC-ND.

Workflow for authors

State the affiliation to Lund University and always use the LU / LTH e-mail in contact with the publisher.

Hybrid journals

When publishing in the hybrid journals, the corresponding author receives information by e-mail that the article is covered by the agreement and is asked to log into Wiley's Author services. In the platform, the author can choose a license and that the article should be open access, and confirm the affiliation.

Open access journals

When publishing in the publisher's open access journals, the corresponding author must, upon submission, state that they belong to an organisation that has an agreement with Wiley and that the article should be paid through 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.
