Open access publishing agreements

Open access agreements have been negotiated for the following publishers: Wiley, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis and SpringerNature. These agreements allow NMBU researchers the opportunity to publish open access without extra cost.

The agreements include both open journals (gold Open Access) and subscription journals (hybrid Open Access) provided by the NMBU University Library.

Open access publishing agreements

For an article to be published open access under the agreements, the following terms apply:

  • Corresponding author must be affiliated with NMBU and choose the correct affiliation while submitting a manuscript
  • Publications will have open licenses for reuse and distribution, mainly CC-BY

Selected journals, titles published by various academic societies in particular, are not covered by the agreements. Publications covered by the terms of the agreements will not be eligible for any support from NMBU’s publication fund.
