Elsevier-Austrian Institutions Agreement

Elsevier and Austrian Institutions have established a pilot agreement to enable continued reading access for Austrian researchers and to enable open access publishing. When publishing in applicable Elsevier journals, authors will be able to choose to publish open access at no additional cost to the author.


Requirements

  • The author must be the corresponding author affiliated with an eligible institution
  • The article must have a submission date between 1.1.2020 and 31.12.2020

On publication, the final published article will be made freely available on ScienceDirect under the author’s choice of open access license (CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND).

How to publish your article open access?

Once your article is accepted for publication in an applicable journal, you will be presented with the open access publishing option.


Green open access

Austrian authors can continue to choose to publish under the subscription model and self-archive their manuscript in line with Elsevier’s sharing policy.
