Elsevier-FinELib Agreement

Elsevier has established an agreement with FinELib – the Finnish consortium - to support Finland’s goal of transitioning to open access publishing. This provides Finnish authors at eligible institutions who submit papers within the duration of the agreement with an incentive to publish their articles open access in applicable Elsevier journals. All open access articles will be published with the author’s choice of two reuse licenses: CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND.

Further information is available on the FinELib webpage.

Green open access

In addition to Elsevier and FinELib’s open access pilot agreement, Finnish authors can continue to choose to publish under the subscription model and self-archive their manuscript (green open access) in line with Elsevier’s sharing policy.
