Frontiers and Nord University form open access publishing agreement

Nord University (Nord universitet) supports their authors in publishing open access. As part of this support, Nord University will cover Article Processing Charges (APCs) for eligible articles centrally for their eligible authors. Furthermore, the Nord University will benefit from a 10% membership discount under the terms of the UNIT Open Access Publishing Framework Agreement.

Eligible authors are corresponding authors affiliated with Nord University.

The journal must be registered in the Directory of Open Journals (DOAJ) and ranked as level 1 or 2 in NSD’s Database for Higher Education.

In applications for external funding, Nord researchers are requested to apply to have expenses for article processing charges (APCs) covered. Articles resulting from external funding including dedicated funds to cover APCs, are not comprised by this publishing agreement.
