Information on the Open-Access Publishing Programme
Through the Open-Access Publishing Programme, the DFG supports research universities in the establishment of publication funds from which the universities are able to pay the publication fees which arise from the publication of articles in open-access journals, provided that members of the university are classified as "submitting author" or "corresponding author". The programme objective is the formation of lasting, reliable structures for financing open-access publications. For that reason, universities submitting proposals must contribute a fixed share of the requested funding volume and explain in the proposal how the publication fund will be perpetuated.
