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 financial year
The article to be published is accepted by the journals editorial board. Status submitted or under revision are not adequate. A reservation or a subsequent application of financial means (e.g. for papers that have already been accepted the year before) are excluded. Submission fees as well as fees for supplements, colour figures etc. cannot be refunded.
2. Golden OA-Journal
The article to be published appears in a journal that makes all articles available over the internet to users free of charge as soon as they appear (pure, gold open access journals).
Journals which charge additional fees for Creative Commons Licences (e.g. CC-BY, CC-BY-NC) are not permitted.
3. Quality Assurance Procedure
The article to be published appears in a journal using strict quality assurance procedures (e.g. peer review).
4. Publication charges
The article processing charge (APC) does not exceed 2.000 € (VAT included). Concerning APCs in the financial border area (2.000 - 2.500 €) please contact the open access team.
Only articles in which a member of the applying institution is responsible as the submitting author or the corresponding author for payment of the publication fees can be funded.
6. Alternative Financing
There are no alternative ways of financing available.
The article has to be additionally published on the university repository KLUEDO.
8. ORCID ID
Please note: For funding application an ORCID ID is required.
ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a persistent, nonproprietary alphanumeric code to uniquely identify scientific and other academic authors and contributors. Through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission it supports automated linkages between an author and her/his professional activities.
