Prepaid and discounted article processing charges
Many of the University Library's publisher agreements include open access publication funding in whole or in part.
Only you, the corresponding author, may publish open access through a publishing agreement. Being a co-author is not enough, except for under the MDPI agreement – see the heading below.
Furthermore, you must be employed at or affiliated to Örebro University. You may for instance have an affiliation agreement with the university. Visiting professors, externally funded doctoral students and students can also publish through these agreements.
Scholars are advised to use the institutional email address (@oru.se) when submitting a manuscript to publish open access under an agreement. This is explicitly required by some publishers. For instructions, please refer to the agreement information pages below.
In all cases, your affiliation to Örebro University is to be indicated in the article.
When the publisher notifies the library that an article has been accepted in a journal included in an agreement, the author’s affiliation to Örebro University is verified. Verification is confirmed against staff records and the university’s affiliate list.
If you are affiliated with another higher education institution (HEI) which is covered by the same national agreement, it is recommended that publication is settled with the HEI where the principal research has been conducted and on which the article is based.
