Publish Open Access for free in journals from IOP, RSC, Taylor & Francis och Springer

Umeå University researchers can now publish open access for free in journals from several publishers.

New agreements between the University Library and the publishers IOP (Institute of Physics), RSC (Royal Society of Chemistry) and Taylor & Francis, covers costs for the library’s subscriptions as well as author publishing fees, the article processing charges (APC). In the current agreement with Springer, the article processing charges are already covered.

The agreements only applies when the corresponding author is affiliated with Umeå University and covers only the so called hybrid journals, the subscription-based journals in which it is possible to publish open access on payment of an APC.More information about open access publishing discounts
