Göran Blomqvist, the foundation’s chief executive, said that its board of directors decided in 2009 that open-access publishing was the way forward.

“Riksbankens Jubileumsfond has funded the costs [of open-access publishing], followed up on developments and seen that this matches our requirements,” Blomqvist said. “Now it is important to support the continued work towards open science.”
