Publishing fund of the University of Innsbruck

As an alternative business model, publishers and journals are increasingly starting to charge publication fees (article processing charges, APCs) for open access publications. To assist the University of Innsbruck's scientists financially and organizationally, a central publishing fund for the co-financing of those charges of open access journals was created.

The funds of the publishing fund of the University of Innsbruck are allocated by the vice rectorate for research in consideration of the following allocation guidelines. An informal application sent to forschung@uibk.ac.at is sufficient. Please attach an estimate for the publication costs.

 

 Criteria for funding

  1. Eligible for funding are publications in open access journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) that carry out appropriate quality assurance measures (e.g. peer review). The article has to be openly accessible directly after publishing as well as licensed for dissemination.
  2. Not eligible are publications written as part of projects that receive OA funding (e.g. projects of the EU or the Austrian Science Fund FWF). We also do not assist in buying out articles of generally subscription-based journals.
  3. We assist with funding for a maximum of three publications per year and author or work group.
  4. The maximum funding amount out of the publication fund is EUR 1,000, with obligatory partial funding through the faculty, the institute and/or the work group. The publication fund doubles the funds supplied by the faculty, the institute and/or the work group up to a maximum of EUR 1,000.
  5. The lead, submitting or corresponding author has to be a member of the University of Innsbruck. This is to be made clear by an indication of the respective affiliation to the University of Innsbruck.
  6. The funding by the University of Innsbruck has to be acknowledged in the paper.
  7. All open access articles funded by the University of Innsbruck will be deposited in the university's institutional repository
