Frontiers and the Karolinska Institute form open access publishing agreement


UPDATE May 2019: The APC fund at the Karolinska Institute is exhausted. Affiliated corresponding authors are still eligible for a 10% institutional discount. Please read the updated description below for instructions.

Karolinska Institute (Karolinska Institutet) supports their authors publishing open access. As part of this support, eligible authors from the Karolinska Institute will benefit from a 10% discount under the terms of the Sweden Open Access Publishing Framework Agreement.

Eligible authors are corresponding authors of a given article who are affiliated to the Karolinska Institute and provide their ZZ invoicing code to Frontiers when submitting their article.

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. Please also provide your ZZ invoicing code in the “Your Reference” field so the invoice can be correctly assigned. Frontiers will then apply the 10% discount to the APC. Upon acceptance, Frontiers will issue the invoice directly to the Karolinska invoicing service with the corresponding author in CC.
