Open access agreements for Sweden: information for authors

Welcome

Under the terms of BMJ’s open access agreement with BIBSAM Konsortium (BIBSAM) , corresponding authors* affiliated to a large number of Swedish universities and research institutions are eligible to publish open access (with fees covered by the agreement) in a range of BMJ journals.

You will also find information here if your institution is part of EiRA, the Swedish consortium for hospitals/healthcare, where a membership agreement entitles you to a discount on your APC in our fully open access journals.
