How do I act as a researcher?

As a researcher at an institution covered by the agreement, you can publish your article OA after it has been accepted. See the list of institutions covered by the agreement.

When your article has been accepted, you as a researcher are guided through the conditions for approval of the agreement's OA conditions. The first step is to select your institution from the list to confirm your affiliation. Next, you will be presented with the option to publish OA without APC payment, and then you must select a Creative Commons license associated with your article.
