Open Access Publishing: How to cover the costs

There are two ways for UiT to cover the costs of publishing Open Access.

1. Through OA deals with academic publishers

The publishing costs are automatically covered for all journals included in UiT's Open Access deals with academic publishers. 

List of included journals

Note that the journal has to be registered in the NSD register for you to earn publication points. 

Requirements:

  • The corresponding author must be affiliated with UiT 
  • Register UiT The Arctic University of Norway as your affiliation during submission and/or when signing a publication agreement (can be referred to as "License Agreement", "Publishing Agreement", "publishing contract")

If these requirements are met, the publisher will offer the opportunity to publish open access at no charge to the author.
