Publication of articles and funding of open access
When publishing an article, you have to consider which journal you will publish in, and check out the possibility of open access-publishing. On this page you can get help with this, and the information about the "read and publish"-agreements is particulary important.
Selection of journal It is important to choose a journal that is approved at level 1 or 2, so that NIH gets a score for the article. You can check out the journal level by searching for the journal in NSD's register of scientific publishing channels.
Open access journals If you choose an open access journal, and it is registered in NSD's register, you can expect it to be a quality journal.
Open access-publishing (open access and hybrid) Once you have chosen a journal, it is preferable that the article is published open access. This can be done by selecting a journal in our read and publish agreements. If it's not there, you can apply to get the APC financed by the open access-fund.
Read and publish agreements
NIH has agreements with the pulishers Elsevier, Taylor & Francis and Springer which allow researchers to publish articles open access without APC / author fees in a number of journals.
How does it work for you as a researcher? In short: you choose open access and include NIH as your affiliation when submitting an article. The library will then receive email from the publisher and approve open access.
