New Funding for Open Access Publications through the Library

|   Publishing

We are pleased to inform you that Section 5.1 Library and Information Services (LIS) has been successful in acquiring funding to support Open Access publications for the period 2022-2024 as part of the DFG funding program "Open Access Publikationskosten".

The DFG-funded OA budget enables LIS to support GFZ scientists in bearing publication costs in genuine Open Access journals (Gold OA) with up to 1300 € per article. For publication costs exceeding this amount, the difference still has to be covered from section funds.

Open Access publication fees that can be financed from third-party funds are, as before, excluded from support by the OA budget.

Detailed information on the OA publication budget and other publication charges can be found on the intranet: [internal link]

Information on other Open Access topics (e.g., Project DEAL) can be found on the library's web pages:
