The Royal Society

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in the Royal Society 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 the Royal Society. The agreement applies to the Royal Society hybrid and open access journals.

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.
  • You must use your university email ending with @umu.se in order to be identified as an Umeå University affiliated author.
  • The agreement applies to articles with a 2024 submission date.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY license.

How the publishing process works

Upon acceptance, when prompted to indicate methods of payment, go to the heading "Article processing fees are covered by a special agreement" and choose "The corresponding author is part of a Read & Publish deal".
