As part of this support, eligible authors from Stockholm University are able to publish open access articles in any Frontiers journal at no charge to the author.

How do I proceed as a corresponding author?

To submit your article under the institutional agreement, please select ‘Stockholm University’ as institutional payer in the invoice section when submitting your article.

Frontiers will then verify your eligibility with the library, and if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the library upon acceptance.
