APCs through project funds

Horizon 2020 and the Welcome Trust fund APCs but you must include this in the grant application at the beginning. This approach may also be possible with other research funders.

European Commission FP7 funded projects

A separate fund is available to make outputs from FP7 funded projects Open Access:

  • APCs will be paid for articles from projects which ended less than 2 years ago
  • book chapters and monographs are included
  • APCs will not be paid for articles that are already published or published in hybrid journals which require subscription access to other articles
  • More details on FP7 post-grant funding and how to apply
