Overview of publishers and journals with memberships, discounts and other special conditions

Some publishers grant "corresponding authors" of the University of Würzburg special conditions for Open Access publications in the context of transformation contracts, memberships or subscriptions. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the details and conditions for these special conditions. For publishers that are not listed on this page, the general terms and conditions of the Publication Fund apply.

The university board is introducing a new funding model for open access publications from 2024. Authors are to contribute financially to the costs of the open access option for hybrid journals with a transformation contract. This also applies if the authors have chosen the opt-out option for these articles. All articles that are accepted for publication by the publisher from 01.01.2024 are affected (journal list of all hybrid journals with a transformation contract).
