Researchers at Jönköping University can publish open access in Brill's subscription-based journals and their fully open access journals without having to pay any author fee, a so-called APC (Article Processing Charge). Furthermore, researchers can publish books as open access with a 20% discount.

Through the agreement, articles submitted from 1 January, 2021 and onwards, will be made freely available to everyone, including those who do not have access via subscription.

Which journals are covered by the agreement?

The agreement comprises over 300 journals. The agreement includes both hybrid journals (subscription-based journals) and fully open access journals. The article types that are covered are "Research articles" and "Review articles".

Who can use the agreement?

In order to use this service you have to be the corresponding author of the article and affiliated with Jönköping University.

Corresponding author is defined as the author that handles all correspondence about the article and sign the publishing agreement on behalf of all the authors.

What do I have to do?

When you, as a corresponding author, submit an article, Brill checks your eligibility via your email address or affiliation. In Brill's Editorial Manager system, you will be asked to state if you are affiliated with an institution that has an open access agreement with Brill. Click "Yes". If your article is accepted it will be published with a Creative Commons license. Such a license will let the reader know how the article can be used:
