Funding Open Access for Post-Grant FP7 Publications
Opportunities for academic publications usually arise towards the end of, or after, the project has finished. The acceptance and peer review process can also delay publication, making it difficult to ensure that the cost of gold open access publications are incurred during the funding period of the project. By making 4 million euro of funding available to cover the cost of publications arising from FP7 projects up to 2 years after the project has ended, this pilot is a first step in addressing this gap. Up to three peer-reviewed research articles per project may be funded. Other types of peer-reviewed publications, such as books, will also be considered.
