The Library has signed a new agreement with Springer that covers all APCs for articles published in Springer Open Choice journals. See eligible journal list here
This means that you do not need to pay Springer an APC to make your article open access in a Springer Open Choice journal as the Library has already paid for it as part of this new agreement.
To make sure that you are covered by this new agreement, when your article has been accepted for publication, Springer will ask you to confirm the following:
My article has been accepted by an Open Choice eligible journal
- I am the corresponding author (please use your institutional email address not your personal one)
- I am affiliated with an eligible UK institution (select your institutions name)
- My article matches one of these types: OriginalPaper, ReviewPaper, BriefCommunication or ContinuingEducation
