SLU has made Open Access agreements with several large publishers.

The Swedish national library consortia together with Swedish universities and colleges has made several agreements with the publishing industry that provide authors with open access publishing at no cost. Most deals only cover publishing in hybrid journals – i.e traditional journals supported by subscriptions wherein individual papers can be made open. SLU also has agreements with individual publishers which facilitates discounts on publishing fees (APCs).
