FinELib ja Fronties solmivat uuden sopimuksen

843.2022

Sopimukseen osallistuvat organisaatiot saavat 10 % alennuksen Frontiersin kirjoittajamaksuista, mahdollisuuden valita eri maksuvaihtoehdoista sekä muita etuja.

FinELib ja Frontiers ovat julkistaneet kolmivuotisen (2002-2024) avoimen julkaisemisen sopimuksen. Sopimusta on pohjustettu FinELibin Full OA -projektissa ja se on ensimmäisen FinELibin ja täysin avoimen (fully OA) lehtikustantajan välillä solmittu sopimus.

Alennuksen saavat kaikki tilaajaorganisaatioihin affilioituneet vastuukirjoittajat, joskin kirjastot valitsevat omien kriteeriensä mukaisesti ne artikkelit, joiden kirjoittajamaksut voidaan maksaa. Muita sopimusetuuksia ovat mm. Frontiersin kirjoittajamaksujen maksimihintojen "jäädyttäminen" sekä julkaisukustannusten seurantaa helpottava raportointi.

Frontiersin lehdistötiedote

Sopimukseen osallistuvat organisaatiot:

  • Aalto-yliopisto
  • Lapin yliopisto
  • Maanpuolustuskorkeakoulu
  • Tampereen yliopisto

FinELib strikes open access deal with Frontiers

The agreement allows participating institutions to benefit from a 10% national discount, streamlined submission and payment workflows, and other benefits.

While making it easier for authors to publish their work open access, the agreement also allows institutions to remain in full control as each APC will be verified before being paid. Further benefits include frozen maximum APCs for the duration of the agreement and improved transparency of OA expenditure through detailed reports.

FAQ

Frontiers

Avoin julkaiseminen Frontiersin lehdissä

FinELib-konsortion ja Frontiersin solmima sopimus mahdollistaa 10 % alennuksen Frontiersin kirjoittajamaksuista (article processing charge, APC).

Alennuksen saaminen edellyttää, että sopimuksessa mukana oleva organisaatio maksaa kirjoittajamaksun. Kaikki artikkelit julkaistaan CC BY -lisenssillä.

Onko artikkelini oikeutettu alennukseen?

Kyllä, jos seuraavat vaatimukset täyttyvät:

  • Organisaatiosi on mukana FinELib-sopimuksessa: Frontiers-tilaajat

  • Olet artikkelisi vastaava kirjoittaja (corresponding author)

  • Artikkelisi on jätetty arvioitavaksi tai hyväksytty julkaistavaksi 1.4.2022–31.12.2024 välisenä aikana (sopimuskausi voi vaihdella organisaatioittain)

  • Artikkelisi on vertaisarvioitu (Frontiersin kategoriat A, B, C)

  • Lehti, jossa julkaiset, sisältyy sopimukseen: Frontiers title list (xls)

  • Organisaatiosi (kirjasto, laitos tms.) maksaa kirjoittajamaksun puolestasi.

Huomioithan, että kirjoittajamaksujen rahoitusehdot vaihtelevat organisaatioittain esim. lehdelle asetettujen vaatimusten (Jufo-taso jne.) suhteen.

Mikäli organisaatiosi ei maksa kirjoittajamaksua, Frontiers lähettää laskun vastuukirjoittajalle eikä alennusta myönnetä.

Epäselvissä tapauksissa ota yhteyttä oman organisaatiosi kirjastoon tai tietopalveluun.

Onko valitsemani lehti Plan S -yhteensopiva?

Journal Checker Toolin avulla voit tarkistaa, täyttääkö valitsemasi lehti cOAlitionS:n ja Suomen Akatemian rahoitusehdot.

Ohjeet vastaavalle kirjoittajalle

Frontiers tunnistaa alennukseen oikeutetut tutkijat:

  • kustantajan järjestelmässä tehdyn valinnan perusteella (Choose Payer → Valitse Frontiers institutional members → Valitse organisaatiosi listalta)

  • sähköpostiosoitteen perusteella (organisaation sähköpostiosoite)

  • vastuukirjoittajan ensisijaisen affiliaation perusteella

Mikäli yksi tai useampi yllä mainituista perusteista täyttyy, organisaatiosi saa pyynnön joko hyväksyä tai hylätä kirjoittajamaksun.

Mikäli organisaatiosi hylkää pyynnön, laskuttaa Frontiers vastuukirjoittajaa eikä alennusta myönnetä.
