Financing Open Access

Assistance with the costs of producing Open Access publications

Fast, worldwide and free of charge - that is the aim of Open Access publications. Anyone wishing to consult these publications can do so immediately and without payment. Instead, many open access publishers - by no means all! - charge the authors who have to pay so-called Article Processing Charges (APCs) or Book Processing Charges (BPCs).

The options for covering these costs depend on the institution you belong to.

The following funds and agreements help you to cover APCs and BPCs.
