Publish for free in OA journals

The Library is offering to pay author fees for JU researchers publishing in pure Open Access journals.

The University Library has, in joint consultation with the strategic council for research at JU (Strategiska rådet för forskning), decided that the money saved due to the cancelled agreement with Elsevier will be used in part to pay for author fees for publication in pure Open Access journals.

The purpose of this decision is to facilitate the transition to open science through immediate publication in accordance with the Swedish government proposition (Prop. 2016/17:50). 

This opportunity will be available until the earmarked money runs out, and will no longer be available if a new agreement with Elsevier is signed. Costs for publication in so-called hybrid journals will not be covered.

Terms for funding via the University Library:

  • The article should be accepted for publication in a pure open access journal and listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
  • The author should list Jönköping University as an affiliated institution and be the corresponding author.
  • Only the APC (article processing charge) is covered by this offer.
  • This offer is only valid if no other means of publication financing is available.
  • This offer does not cover invoices that have already been paid.
