As an NUS-affiliated author* of a Karger Open Access or Hybrid journal article between Jan. 1, 2021 and Dec. 31, 2023, you are affected in two ways:
NUS corresponding authors: You are able to publish your article submitted Open Access without incurring Article Processing Charges by using your institutional email and specifying your institutional affiliation to be ‘National University of Singapore’. A copy of your open access article will also be deposited into Scholarbank@NUS, NUS' institutional repository the next quarter from the published date. If you do not wish to publish Open Access, you may select the ‘Opt Out despite being eligible’ option and publish your work in Karger as subscription-only, paywalled content.
NUS co-authors: If you are a co-author of an article, but not the corresponding author, a copy of your article will be deposited into Scholarbank@NUS, NUS' institutional repository the next quarter from the published date.
*To ensure your eligibility, please use your NUS email (emails ending with @nus.edu.sg; @duke-nus.edu.sg; @comp.nus.edu.sg; @yale-nus.edu.sg) during article submission.
