Nature Research Journals: Article allocation reached

Credit: Nature

Our article allocation for free Open Access publishing in Nature Research journals for the year 2024 has been reached. 

The article quota for free publishing of open access articles in the Nature Research Portfolio has been reached. Until the end of 2024, the University Library can therefore no longer cover the cost of the article processing charges (APC’s) in the Nature Research journals. Members of the University of Zurich or its’ affiliated hospitals may continue to publish open access articles, but at their own expense.


It is possible to choose the green route (self-archiving) for publishing Open Access. The accepted manuscript can be deposited in the repository ZORA after an embargo period. Open access publishing in Springer Nature's hybrid journals via SpringerLink is still possible at no costs for the UZH researchers ( agreement). Further information to the Read&Publish agreements can be found on our website Article Fee Funding.

As of 1.1.2025 the new allocation of open access articles in the Nature Research journals will be open to use.
