Discount on publishing charges

Through a number of agreements with publishers, the Library can offer LiU authors discounts on publishing charges (APCs). Here you can find out more about available discounts and which criteria apply for receiving discounts when publishing Open Access.

Linköping University Library actively supports the transition to 100% Open Science, for example by offering support to LiU authors that publish Open Access. We have agreements with publishers that grant LiU authors discounts when publishing Open Access in hybrid journals. In some cases, we can cover the entire Article Processing Charge (APC).

You can find an exhaustive list of our agreements and discounts further down on this page. You also have the option to search journals to see if they are covered by any of the agreements.

Publishing agreementsShow/Hide content

The Library has a number of agreements with publishers that can provide discounts on APC’s or cover them entirely.

By including your correct LiU affiliation and your @liu.se email address in the article and manuscript submission system, the APC will often be discounted automatically. In some cases you need to provide certain information. 

Please note that authors may still need to cover colour charges, page charges and other ancillary costs.

Since we are in a transition period when it comes to transformative agreements, the journals covered by the agreements may change. The information in the search engine below is continuously updated. Please double check before submitting your article.

Click on the publisher in the list (under "Publishers") below for detailed information about each agreement. You can also use the search box to find out if a specific journal is covered by any of the agreements.
