Frontiers and Umeå University form open access publishing agreement


Under the terms of the Sweden Open Access Publishing Framework Agreement, Umeå University will cover article processing charges (APCs) for eligible authors, publishing in any of the Frontiers journals.

Eligible authors are corresponding authors of a given article, affiliated with Umea University. Please see the Open Access Publishing page for more information.

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 ‘Umeå University’ as the institutional payer in the invoice section. Frontiers will then verify your eligibility with the Umeå University Library, and if confirmed, the APC will be paid by the Library upon acceptance.
