Publication fund

Open Access publication fund

Our Open Access publishing fund supports the publication of articles in Open Access journals financially.

Which Open Access publications are eligible for financial support?

We will be happy to help you figure out whether you meet the requirements for Open Access funding.

Requirements for support from the University of Würzburg publication fund:

  • The journal is an Open Access journal (not just a journal with an Open Access option).
  • The journal adheres to the stringent quality assurance procedures recognised in your discipline. You find adequate journals for example in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). We support publications in journals that are not listed in the DOAJ, only if they conform to our quality criteria. Please get in touch for further information.
  • The publication fee is less than €2,000 (currently $2,250).
    Publication fees over €2,000 are usually not supported by the publication fund. For support in individual cases, please contact us before submission.
  • You are the corresponding author for the publication and are a member of the University of Würzburg (including the University Hospital).
  • You have received no third-party funds or other funding to cover the publication fee.   
  • You include the following funding statement: ‘This publication was supported by the Open Access Publication Fund of the University of Wuerzburg.’

How can I secure funding?

  • Optional: Register your publication by mail before or when submitting the manuscript.
    The advantage here is that we can tell you right away whether you have fulfilled the funding requirements.
  • Once the article has been accepted, send the publisher’s invoice to us by e-mail.
    Please always state the VAT-number of the University (even as member of the University Hospital)
    VAT DE 134187690

    Please use your address at the University. Members of the University Hospital please use: Universitaet Wuerzburg
    Your name
    Sanderring 2
    D-97070 Wuerzburg
  • We will begin by paying the entire invoice.
  • We will then send you an invoice for your share of the cost.
  • From 2020, the authors' share is 58 % of the total costs including VAT.
