Partial funding of Open Access publications

Back to Overview

You are here:

We are pleased to inform you that the Medical Library, with the support of Faculty Management, has found a way to continue supporting scientists in publishing Open Access on a partial funding basis in 2021!

As of now, publication of Gold Open Access articles (i.e. articles in pure Open Access journals) can be supported with up to 500 EUR per article, assuming that the established funding conditions of the Publication Fund are met. If the article fee is less than 500 EUR incl. VAT, the entire fee is funded.

Early Career Researchers who publish their articles as corresponding authors in 2021 and fulfil the usual funding conditions will be supported to the full amount of the Article Processing Charge (APC). Researchers are eligible to ECR support up to 4 years post-doctoral (verified upon submission of complete application including invoice).

For applications, please use the form "Application for Financial Support of Open Access Publication Costs".

This offered funding is initially valid until the end of the year. In the meantime, new funding model for Open Access publications will be developed and taken into effect in 2022. For more information, please visit the site of the Publication Fund.

Please also note our new conditions on DEAL and the publishing agreements.

The Open Access team of the Medical Library will be happy to continue advising you!
