Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in Karger journals. Read more about the terms of our agreement with the publisher for 2023 and what it means for you here.

The open access publishing fee has been pre-paid through an agreement between the library and Karger. The agreement applies to hybrid and open access journals from Karger. 

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.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY-NC or CC BY-license.

How the publishing process works

At the “Open Access Agreements” step in the submission process, tick the “Eligible” option and enter “Umeå University” in the text box.
