Nature and Nature Research journals

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in Nature and Nature Research journals. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher for 2024 and what it means for you here.

The open access publishing fee (APC, article processing charge) has been pre-paid through an agreement between the library and Springer Nature. The agreement applies to open access publishing in the journal Nature and in Nature Research journals. The agreement does not include other Nature journals, Nature Protocols or Nature Reviews journals.

For Nature Academic journals, go to the Springer Compact agreement.

Terms and conditions

  • You must be the corresponding author, i.e., the one handling communication with the publisher and journal.
  • Your Umeå University affiliation must be stated in the published article.
  • Use your university email ending with @umu.se. The email domain is often used to recognise your eligibility.
  • The agreement applies to original papers (analysis, article, letter, brief communication, registered report, resource, technical report).
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY license.
