Emerald

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

The open access publishing fee has been pre-paid through an agreement between the library and Emerald. The agreement applies to Emerald’s 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.
  • Use your university e-mail ending with @umu.se. The e-mail domain is often used to recognize your eligibility.
  • In order to be eligible for the agreement, your article must have a 2021 acceptance date.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY license unless you request another license.

How the publishing process works

  • Choose “Yes, I want to publish my article as Open Access” in ScholarOne when you submit your manuscript.
  • Within 30 days of the acceptance email, you will receive a follow up email with a link to the CC BY license and information regarding the payment of the APC. Complete and sign the document and email it to the Emerald contact.
