MJS Publishing

Researchers working at any organisation participating in the Bibsam consortium can publish articles in MJS journals free of charge. The research funders cover the cost.

The four research funders Swedish Research Council, Forte, Formas, and Vinnova have decided to jointly fund publishing with publishers who only publish fully open access journals during 2024 and 2025. This means that researchers at Umeå University can publish articles in MJS journals without having to pay a publishing fee (APC, article processing charge). The same conditions apply to all researchers linked to an organisation in the Bibsam consortium.
