About the Agreement

The agreement is a national so-called “Read & Publish” agreement. The APCs are already prepaid, since the agreement includes both the costs of the library's subscriptions as well as the costs of open access publishing. The agreement was negotiated by The National Library of Sweden and in addition to Stockholm University, a number of other Swedish research institutes have chosen to participate in the agreement.

Centrally funded and discounted article processing charges at Stockholm University
