Agreements on Open Access publishing

Selected journals, titles published by various academic societies in particular, are not covered by the agreements.

Some agreements only cover hybrid journals (subscription journals with an open access option), others also cover gold journals (fully open access journals) - see table. Expenses beyond APC, such as extra pages, colour illustrations and copy editing, must be covered by the author/department.

The easiest way to check if a journal is included in an agreement, is to consult OpenScience. There you can check the publisher's title list. Keep in mind that OpenScience shows more agreements than NMBU currently takes part in.

Use Journal Checker Tool to see if a journal is compliant with cOAlitionS (PlanS).

 

Be aware that some agreements operate with publishing quotas. Once a quota is met, the agreement will be paused for the remainder of the year.

 

To publish cost free under one of the agreements, the following terms generally apply:

  • Corresponding author must be affiliated with NMBU and choose the correct affiliation while submitting a manuscript
  • Open publication must be chosen upon submission (e.g. Elsevier) or after a manuscript has been accepted (e.g. Wiley)
  • Publications will have open licenses for reuse and distribution, mainly CC-BY
