Frontiers and the Karolinska Institute form open access publishing agreement


The Karolinska Institute (Karolinska Institutet) supports their authors in publishing open access. As part of this support, the Karolinska Institute will cover article processing charges for eligible authors under the terms of the Sweden Open Access Publishing Framework Agreement.

Eligible authors are corresponding authors affiliated with the Karolinska Institute who submit their article after 1 January 2019.

Eligible authors will benefit from streamlined submission and invoicing processes, managed directly between Frontiers and the Open Access team at the Karolinska Institute University Library, relieving authors of the responsibility of payment. Furthermore, the Karolinska Institute will benefit from a 10% discount on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles covered by this agreement.

Information for authors:

To submit your article under this institutional agreement, it is recommended you submit with an email domain affiliated to your institution. When submitting your article, please select ‘Karolinska Institute’ under the Institutional Agreements menu in the invoice section. Frontiers will then verify your affiliation with the Karolinska Institute, and if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the Library upon acceptance.

For more information on open access at the Karolinska Institute, please see the open access information page. If you have any questions, or want to check if your article is eligible, please contact the Karolinska Institute University Library at
