Discount on publishing charges

The library has signed agreements on open access membership with British Medical Publishing (BMJ) Journals and Royal Society Publishing that gives Linköping University authors a 25% discount when publishing Open Access (OA) articles in journals from the two publishers.

For articles published in pure OA-journals, a 25% discount is awarded and the library pays the remaining charge. For details, please see Support for publishing in pure OA journals.

For articles published in hybrid journals, a 25% discount is awarded and the author pays the remaining charge.

To be able to use the Open Access option the corresponding author must have a valid LiU-ID, a LiU address and an e-mail address ending with @liu.se. The article must have Linköping University specified as affiliation in the publication.

For BMJ Journals:

Upon acceptance, authors are sent a unique code which they enter during the payment stages and are then granted the 25% discount.

For Royal Society Publishing journals:

After acceptance, authors will be asked if they are members. The publisher will also do a manual check to see whether the author belongs to a member university or not.

If you have any questions please contact openaccess@bibl.liu.se. We will also be happy to come to your department for an information session.
