Fees for articles in open access journals can be covered, provided the following general conditions are met. The open access team of the TUK checks whether the rules have been obtained.
1. Articles accepted in the current fiscal year
The article to be published is accepted by the journals editorial board in the current fiscal year. Articles which have just been submitted or are under revision are not eligible for funding. Reserving funds and subsequent application for financial means (e.g. for papers that have been accepted in the year before) are excluded.
Funding is only possible for primary research articles (no editorial, report, ...) of at least five pages.
Submission fees as well as fees for additional services (color charges etc.) cannot be financially supported.
2. Golden OA-Journal
3. Quality Assurance Procedure
The article to be published appears in a journal using strict quality assurance procedures (e.g. peer review).
The article will be additionally published on the university's document server KLUEDO. If possible, this will be done immediately after the first publication or as soon as the legal requirements allow to do so (assigned rights of use, embargo periods, etc.).
6. ORCID ID
Your article will be published with a CC-BY license (recommended by the DFG), possibly also one of the other possible CC licenses. Note that said licenses must not entail any costs.
