Open Access Publishing

for CEU Authors

Open Access Publishing Agreements

The CEU Library supports open access through journal license agreements with publishers that include both reading access and waivers of article processing charges (APCs). The agreements include Hybrid OA journals where some articles in a journal are open access and others are not, and Open Access journals, called Fully Open or Gold OA where the entire journal is open access. Most of these agreements are organized through the Austrian Academic Library Consortium (Kooperation E-Medien Österreich).

To publish OA you need to meet the following requirements:

  • You are “corresponding author” of the accepted article.
  • You are affiliated with CEU (resident faculty, visiting faculty or researcher, students, postdocs, staff) in most cases at the time of acceptance.
  • The article lists “Central European University” as your affiliation or as one of your affiliations.
  • Use your CEU e-mail address when submitting your article.

Current Library agreements include these publishers (updated January 2, 2023):

  • Cambridge University Press (Fully Open and Hybrid)
  • Elsevier (Fully Open and Hybrid)
  • Oxford University Press (Hybrid)
  • Sage Publishing (Hybrid)
  • Springer Nature (Hybrid)
  • Taylor & Francis (Hybrid)
  • Wiley Hybrid “OnlineOpen”
