Read- and publish agreement

Researchers at Lund University can through an agreement publish open access, free of charge, in Wiley's pure OA journals and hybrid journals.

About the agreement

The agreement provides free 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.

Articles that belong to the overall 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 the type of article in question is covered by the agreement.

The agreement applies to articles accepted from January 1st, 2020.

Since the agreement is national, there is a limit to the total number of articles published for all participants in the agreement.

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.
