New Open Access Services Guidelines

There has been an important change in KU Open Access Services, which pays some article processing charges (APC) of OA articles by KU authors. The university administration has changed the guidelines and criteria for this service, as follows:

Starting from 24 October, the new guidelines state that a journal must be rated in the top 20% of its subject area by Scopus, until the end of 2023.

Furthermore, starting from 1 January 2024, the guidelines will change further to require that journals be rated in the top 15% of a subject area in Scopus.
