Open Access Publish and Read Agreements

OsloMet has entered into agreements with the publishers Cambridge, Elsevier, Emerald, Oxford University Press, Sage, SpringerNature, Taylor & Francis and Wiley that will cover Author Publishing Charges (APC).

Unit has on behalf of Norwegian Higher Education institutions made Publish and Read agreements with these publishers. The agreements will make academic staff affiliated with the participating institutions able to publish their research articles Open Access (OA) in the publisher’s journals. The Article Publishing Charge (APC) will be covered by OsloMet as part of the agreements and will not entail cost for the researcher / research groups.
