See the list of all discount agreements

  • The annual cap for articles without APC payment in the Danish Wiley agreement has now been reached.
    Manuscripts accepted for publication in the current year will not be eligible for the APC waiver. Instead, a 15 % discount will be offered.
  • The annual cap for articles without APC payment for the Danish Cambridge University Press agreement in 2023 is close to being reached.
    It is still possible to publish green OA in the journals. If you have any questions about this feel free to contact the AU Library Open Access support
    Articles accepted after the cap is reached can be published open access if the author pays an APC. There is a 10% discount on APC. The number of articles that can be covered by the agreements will be reset on January 1st 2024.
