The library has an agreement with MDPI to pay article processing charges (APCs) for articles where the corresponding author is affiliated with Stockholm University.

How do I proceed as a corresponding author?

If you submit a manuscript from within the university network, Stockholm University Institutional Membership is automatically preselected for corresponding authors.

If you submit a manuscript using a non-registered IP address (outside the university network), please select Stockholm University as Institutional Membership during the last step of the submission process. Make sure to click “Yes” to confirm that you are eligible for central funding.

The library is notified of all new submission from corresponding authors affiliated with Stockholm University and verifies the affiliation. Upon acceptance of the article, the invoice will automatically be sent to the library. (Additionally all APCs are discounted with 10%.)
