Open access via LUP

Demands, that publically funded research must be freely available, are being raised by several research funders. A cost-efficient way to meet these demands is to self-archive your publications in LUP.

What do you need to do as a researcher?

If your publication is published by any of the publishers below, you don't have to do anything. The library will archive the publisher's version of your publication in LUP and thus make it open access.

  • APS (American Physical Society)
  • AIP (American Institute of Physics)
  • EDP Sciences
  • OSA (Optical Society of America)
  • SPIE (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers)
  • Copernicus Publications (vissa tidskrifter)

If your publication is published by another publisher than the above, you need to self-arhive the latest refereed manuscript of your publication (not the publisher's version) in LUP.

No time? Send the manuscript file to the library and we will archive it for you.

Thus we meet the demands on Open Access together!

If you want to self-archive your publications you need to know about the publisher's self-archiving policies. Information about this can be found in the  Sherpa / RoMEO database.

If the publisher has no policy regarding self archiving, you can contact them. Below is a draft letter template you can use:
