Publisher Agreements

Leuphana has entered into agreements for open access publishing with several publishers to support its researchers financially and organisationally. These agreements offer authors to publish open access either at a discount or free of charge. The following list provides an overview of the conditions and workflows of individual publishers with whom agreements exist.

→  In addition to publishing agreements, funding is possible through the Open Access Publication Fund.

Notes

In order to be eligible for funding, the corresponding author (Wiley: responsible corresponding author) must be affiliated with Leuphana Universität Lüneburg and must indicate this institution when submitting the manuscript. Please submit your articles using your Leuphana email address and - whenever possible - your ORCID iD. Regarding the choice of a Creative Commons license, we strongly recommend CC BY 4.0, as this is open access compliant. The decision as to whether an article should be published in open access is made by the authors themselves.

Hybrid Open Access: Hybrid journals are subscription-based journals in which authors can choose to publish their articles either behind a paywall or open access.

Gold Open Access: In gold (genuine/fully) open access journals all articles are published open access.
