Since 2016 Gothenburg University Library has been mapping all article processing charges paid by the University of Gothenburg. One of the purposes was to show the double debit of hybrid publishing, which otherwise becomes invisible, as the budgets of the library and the faculties never cross paths. The findings show an annual total cost of between 5,2 and 6,7 million SEK (520- 670 000 EUR) on publishing fees. They also confirmed our assumptions regarding higher costs for hybrid APC, and made the extra paper work regarding peripheral costs visible. It has been crucial to the mapping process that cooperation between different units within the university organization was initiated: the licensing team, the OA team, the Library Office and the Grants and Innovation Office.
