Umeå University researchers can publish open access at no cost in Springer Nature open access 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. In this national pilot- and consortia agreement, research funders the Swedish Research Council, Forte, Formas and Vinnova contribute with 50% of the funding. The agreement applies to Springer Nature open access journals.
Upon acceptance you will be asked to confirm your affiliation on Springer’s publication platform. Choose “Umeå University” from the dropdown list.
