The University of Groningen is launching a stimulus fund to support diamond open access initiatives by UG and UMCG researchers. The fund can be used to expand and improve existing initiatives (e.g. professionalizing or scaling-up a scholar-led journal) or to create new ones (e.g. setting up a new journal or flipping an existing journal to diamond open access).
Diamond open access initiatives (journals, publication platforms, etc.) do not charge subscriptions fees, nor publication fees to authors. They are free to access/read and free to publish in (no Article Processing Charges, APC or Book Processing Charges, BPC). These initiatives are usually non-profit, run by and for academics.
The UG/UMCG is making available a total of €60,000 to be awarded over the course of 1.5 years (until August 2023). Eligible initiatives can request a one-off contribution. The indicative maximum contribution that can be requested is €5,000 per application.
If you have any questions about the fund please contact us at openaccess rug.nl or openaccess umcg.nl.
