Hello QGIS community

I have submitted an article to the journal PlosOne that includes an
interpolation map of my data made with QGIS.

Here is the message from the PlosOne staff

Thank you for clarifying the sources of Figures. Unfortunately, maps
produced using QGIS are copyrighted under the CC SA license, regardless of
the data, basemap, or map tile sources. PLOS ONE cannot publish CC SA
licensed material as we utilize the less restrictive CC BY 4.0 license.
Under this license, all material is freely available online, and any third
party is permitted to access, download, copy, distribute, and use these
materials in any way, even commercially.

At this time, kindly seek permission from QGIS to publish figure
Supplementary Figure A under the CC BY 4.0 license. We recommend that you
contact QGIS with the following text:

“I request permission for the open-access journal PLOS ONE to publish XXX

Please upload the granted permission to the manuscript as a supporting
information file. In the figure caption of the copyrighted figure, please
include the following text: “Reprinted from [ref] under a CC BY license,
with permission from [name of publisher], original copyright [original
copyright year].”

Who can help me to get the permission?

Thank you for your help
