Following the Max Planck Society, the Georg-August University Göttingen, and several research centres of the Helmholtz Association, the University of Bremen has now signed an agreement with Copernicus Publications about the central billing of article processing charges.
If the first author is affiliated with one of the institutes of the University of Bremen, the article processing charges for category 1 and 2 papers will be settled automatically between Copernicus Publications and the Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Bremen. For category 3 and 4 papers, only the respective difference has to be paid by the authors. This arrangement is valid for submissions after 1 April 2014.
