I would like my article to be published under Open Access. What do I have to do?
Articles are submitted on the SpringerNature website in the usual way. When submitting your applications, please use your e-mail address at the University of Bern, Inselspital or PH Bern.
As soon as your article has been accepted by the journal, the corresponding author will receive a request from SpringerNature to provide various details. Under "Choose your affiliation" you can choose the University of Bern, the PH Bern or the Inselspital. Subsequently, it will automatically recognize that your "affiliation" is authorized to publish Open Access.
IMPORTANT: Select the Open Access option.
If the Open Access option does not appear, either the journal or the article type is not part of the licence.
ATTENTION: If you reject the Open Access option, you cannot undo this. The Open Access publication can no longer be financed by this license.
