Open Access Publishing Fund

Starting in April 2013 the TUHH library has offered a fund to support the publication of articles in Open Access journals according to the criteria of the DFG. Since 2014 until 2019 additional funds are available from the German Research Foundation (DFG) out of its funding programme “Open Access Publishing”. If the DFG’s criteria are met, the TUHH library will continue to bear all the costs for the published articles in so-called GOLD Open Access journals. This regulation has been extended until 30.06.2020.

The funding occurs through the TUB according to the criteria of the DFG on the principle: First come – First serve. Please also use the opportunity to list publication costs in your project application and to apply for them! The DFG currently provides project funding of up to €750 per year. Publication costs for industrial projects should also be taken into account.

How can I apply for funding by the Open-Access Publishing Fund?

Please make the application before entering into a contract with the journal:

After successful review by the TUHH library you receive a commitment for the costs, which have to be paid in the case of acceptance of your article by the journal. We also check whether the selected journal fits the quality criteria. In this case, the invoice will be paid by the library. The invoices must always be issued to the TUHH and contain the VAT number of the TUHH.
