Funding Open Access Publications

Open Access publications are freely accessible online for everyone at any time - without costs or other restrictions for readers. This eliminates the need to finance journals via subscription fees or pay-per-view, which was previously the practice since alternative business models have been developed. The currently most widespread Open Access financing model is the collection of Article Processing Charges (APC). These are invoiced before the publication of a contribution by the submitter or his/her scientific institution. In addition, there are other models, e.g. membership in a scientific society can entitle the holder to free publications in the society's journals.

For the financing of APC, HHU, through ULB, offers its scholars various support options, about which we would like to inform you on these web pages. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. If you have any specific questions, ULB's expert advisors will be happy to assist you.
