In the case of articles with multiple authors, only the corresponding author can qualify as an Affiliated Author.

The corresponding author must be responsible for managing the publication process of an article, from submission to post-acceptance, and must be the one who corresponds with the Publisher.

To help with the approval process authors should use their University of Huddersfield email address and ensure they select the correct affiliation from the drop-down search during the submission process

Please note: papers with corresponding authors who are honorary, visiting or NHS members of staff without a contract of employment will not normally be eligible to use this agreement.


Eligible Journals

The eligible article must be published in an eligible hybrid journal. Fully gold open access journals are not included in this agreement.

Licence options 

Authors have a choice between a commercial (CC BY) or non-commercial (CC BY-NC-ND) license. The licence choice is dependent on the journal selected.
