EISZ (Hungarian Electronic Information Service National Programme)

Elsevier and the Hungarian consortium EISZ have entered a pilot agreement which provides researchers from Hungarian institutions access to Elsevier journals, while supporting open access publishing. When publishing in applicable Elsevier journals, eligible authors will be able to choose the open access model at no additional cost to the author.

Use our journal search tool to find eligible titles.


  • The author must be the corresponding author affiliated with an eligible institution
  • The article must have a submission date of on or after July 1st, 2019

Further information is available on the EISZ webpage.

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. All open access articles will be published with your choice among two reuse licenses: CC-BY or CC-BY-NC-ND.

Green open access

In addition to the open access pilot agreement between Elsevier and EISZ, Hungarian 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.
