Open access agreement for authors at eligible Swedish institutions

Publish open access with Wiley

Authors affiliated with participating Swedish Bibsam institutions may publish primary research and review articles in any of Wiley's and Hindawi's fully gold open access journals or Wiley's hybrid (subscription-based) journals which offer an open access option at no further charge* to the author.


To publish without having to pay additional Article Publication Charges (APCs), the article's responsible corresponding author must be from an eligible institution and the article must have been accepted on or after 1 January 2023 if submitted to a hybrid journal, and on submission from 1 January 2023 if submitting to a fully gold open access journal.

You can be confident that by choosing open access, your work will have the best chance to be read, cited, and shared. Read more about the advantages of publishing open access here.
