How does an author publish an Open Access article?

When submitting a manuscript, a corresponding author (hereinafter “author”) must use the institutional e-mail address (domains are listed as part of the transformative agreement: fgu.cas.cz; jcu.cz; knav.cz, lib.cas.cz; muni.cz; nm.cz; techlib.cz; ujep.cz; cuni.cz; upol.cz; vscht.cz. The system should also correctly recognize subdomains).

After a manuscript has been successfully reviewed and accepted for publication:

  • It is handed over to the production team and given a unique ID.
  • The author receives a welcome e-mail containing a unique link to the licensing and payment system (Author Services).
  • If the institution identifier (Ringgold ID) matches one of the eligible institutions (see above), the author receives a second e-mail, with instructions on how to take advantage of the free Open Access publishing option in the transformative agreement.
  • After Open Access is requested, an institution’s OA administrator has 7 days to approve the request (due to unlimited usage, exhaustion of the limit cannot be a reason for refusal, but another circumstance can - e.g. you are no longer a member of the institution). Please note: if an OA request is denied by an institutional administrator, the author must pay the APC!
