Library publishing agreements
Linköping University Library has a number of Read and Publish agreements with publishers. These agreements cover both rights to access articles and Open Access publishing for LiU authors. This page includes information about these agreements and a search box for finding out if individual journals are covered by an agreement.
The Library’s publishing agreements can cover the whole, or part of, the Article Processing Charge (APC) when publishing in hybrid journals and pure Open Access journals. You can find an exhaustive list of our agreements and discounts further down on this page.

A basic requirement to publish under one of the agreements is that you are formally affiliated with Linköping University. Such an affiliation can be that you are an employee, a PhD student, or a professor emeritus at LiU. Beyond these categories, a formal LiU affiliation is defined in the decision from the Vice-Chancellor from 31 May, 2021, Dnr LiU-2021-02223.
Important points to consider
- By including your correct LiU affiliation and your @liu.se email address in the article and manuscript submission system, publishers will usually identify the article as covered by an agreement automatically. In some cases you need to provide certain information. If you are using the internet on campus or are using VPN when you submit your article, that might help the publisher to automatically identify your article as potentially covered by an agreement.
- Please note that authors may still need to cover colour charges, page charges and other ancillary costs not covered by the agreements.
- Since we are in a transition period when it comes to transformative agreements, journals which are covered by an agreement are subject to change. Use the search box below to find out if a specific journal is covered by any of our agreements. Please double check before submitting your article.
- Types of article covered varies depending on the agreement. Please double check if you are about to publish an item that is not an original research article.
