Funding Opportunities

On Monday, July 4, all library locations will not open until 10 a.m. due to an internal event.

Open Access Publishing Fund for articles in journals

The University of Siegen supports its scientists in publishing their research results in Open Access journals by providing an Open Access Publication Fund for the reimbursement of article processing charges to authors.

Until 2019, the Publication Fund of the University of Siegen was funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of its "Open Access Publishing" funding programme. Since the end of DFG funding, the Publication Fund has been supported by funds of the University Library. Thus financial aids from this Publication Fund are still guaranteed, provided the request complies with the funding conditions.

  • Requests for funding can be applied for by using the PDF-form, provided they comply with the funding conditions.
  • Funds are granted on "first come, first-serve" basis, as long as financial means are available.
  • Please note that the invoice has to be pre-financed by own funds of the university institute first.

  • Funds are granted on "first come, first-serve" basis, as long as financial means are available.
  • Please note that the invoice has to be pre-financed by own funds of the university institute first.

Funding conditions of research funders

DFG

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) requests to publish the research results of funded projects open access. Funds for publication fees up to the amount of EUR 750, - per year can be applied for within the general application process. Within a more flexible funding, the funds for publication fees can be increased by funds for staff or equipment. Funding for publication fees only is not possible. Further information can be found on the web pages of the DFG.

ERC - Horizon 2020 Europe

For funded projects, the European Research Council (ERC) requires the publication of the results in scientific publications with peer review in open access. In this context, publication of the published version via a repository is mandatory at the latest at the time of publication. Publications must be available in open access from the time of publication, regardless of the publication channel. For Gold Open Access publications in journals, books or on platforms, costs such as APCs, BPCs, but also other publication costs such as color charges or page charges are eligible for funding if these costs are incurred within the project period and conform to the other funding conditions of the program. Costs for articles in hybrid journals or for books of which only individual chapters are published in open access are not eligible for funding.
