Open Access Funding

Open Access Funding in 2017

The University Duisburg-Essen encourages its researchers to publish their results in Open Access journals and will continue the financial support in 2017 with an Open Access Publication Fund:
UDE Open Access declaration.

You can get a refund up to 50 % or up to 1,000.00 € for an article from the Open Access Publication Fund depending on weather you have already received other funding.

Please submit a copy of the original invoice for the publication, a proof of payment in € and this form by post or e-mail.

Conditions for funding

  • A member of the University Duisburg-Essen is the submitting author or the corresponding author of an article and, therefore, responsible for the payment of its publication fees.
  • The article has got to be published in a journal whose contents are instantly available online and free of charge once they are published ("genuine Open Access Journals" that are listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals) and that applies acknowledged methods of quality assurance.

    There are some Open Access Journals which are rated untrustworthy and whose publishing activities are considered inadequate. Click here to check out the journal titles.

  • Fees for publishing articles as Open Access within subscription journals ("Open Choice" scheme) may be paid on the basis of individual assessment.
  • Publications from a bonus program cannot be funded.
