Springer Compact (Springer Nature hybrid journals)

Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in Springer Nature hybrid 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 Springer Nature. The agreement applies to Springer Nature hybrid journals (Open Choice 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.
  • The agreement applies to the article types “original paper”, “review paper”, “brief communication” and “continuous education”.
  • Your article will be published under a CC BY license.

How the publishing process works

Upon acceptance you will be asked to confirm your affiliation on Springer’s publication platform. Choose “Umeå University” from the dropdown list.
