◄ Back to the Overview of Open Access Funding 

Many institutions around the world support open access publishing and have funding available to assist authors with covering of publishing fees. In order to help researchers who want to make their work openly available we created a comprehensive list of organizations that provide financial support to pay for article processing charges (APCs) and/or book processing charges (BPCs).
The information on this OA funding is monitored and updated regularly by Publishing Specialist, Open Access, Ewa Dzik (Ewa.Dzik@degruyteropen.com).
